Many possibilities: See your family doctor so he or she can rule out serious problems from a kidney stone to an infection or perhaps a musculo-skeletal issue. It can even be from the lining of your lungs. Lastly it could even be something pressing on your urinary system. I wouldn't wait to deal with this.

Also could be your liver, so a thorough evaluation should be done since this is chronic.
