What causes pain on the left side of back above waist?
Pain above the waist on the right side of the back is most probably a kidney stone, although that is not the only possibility. A test of your urine, to check for elevated leve…ls of red blood cells, can find out if this is actually a kidney stone. Most kidney stones will pass without medical intervention, but it is always a good idea to increase the amount of fluids you are drinking, to assist this process. More drinking leads to more urination, which helps to flush out the kidney stone.
Spasm or strain of the muscles is likely to be the cause. This usually results from wrong or heavy lifting, or following a sudden improper movement or maintained wrong p…osture. Muscle spasm alone can cause the pain which can be an unidentified cause. In these cases, self care and avoiding the precipitating cause will lead to a gradual but clear improvement in the pain. Home treatment includes the use of analgesics, cold or hot therapy. Rest for maximum two days is also beneficial. If these measures fail to relief the pain or to improve symptoms in 48 hours, you should visit your doctor for better evaluation and for exclusion of other causes that need specific therapy. Other causes for left sided abdominal pain include: - GI causes like IBS in which alternating constipation and diarrhea with abdominal distension are main symptoms. Gastritis and GERD. - Urinary problems like renal colick. Follow up with your doctor is essential. Hope you find this information useful. Keep us updated. Best regards,
If the pain is stabbing and intense, and radiates, it's consistent with nerve compression pain caused by either a bulging disk or a disk that's fully herniated. If the p…ain goes down the back of your legs, it's the Sciatic nerve being compressed by the L4/5 or L5/S1 disk; if the pain stops at the inside of the knee, it's the L3/4 disk nerve being compressed. Regardless, the treatment is the same - get off your feet, and lie down. Sitting is out as it also puts pressure on the lower spine. If it lasts in its intensity for more than 3 days, you'll probably require an Epidural or Facet Injection (local or targeted steroid injections to reduce inflammation) so that the disk can retract and heal. However, be aware that for most, the shots and resulting pain are as bad or worse than the pain it's intended to deal with. In the years when I still got benefit from shots, it generally took 2 or 3 days for the pain from the injection to subside. Muscle spasms caused by the pain of the nerve compression adds to the problem, and is the reason muscle relaxers are commonly prescribed. As the muscles / tendons contract during pain spasms, the area around the nerve becomes tighter, increasing the nerve compression and subsequently the pain. It's a vicious cycle. As I said, pain lasting in intensity for more than 2 or 3 days needs to be checked by a doctor. The severity of the pain also can give you an indication of just how bad the problem is - if you can walk without support (cane, etc.) then it's not that bad, but still should be checked anyway. If you can walk but need support, then it's more serious and you should hve it checked immediately.
One thing that can cause left side of neck pain above a collar bone could be a stiff neck. If the pain does not go away, one should see a doctor.
Unless you have any other symptoms: gas. It could also be an ectopic pregnancy (it cannot be ruled out through physical findings); if you are in your first trimester esp…ecially, go to the ED.
It may be your ovaries, or it could be that you are simply not driking enough water, try drinking water and cranberry juice to flush out your kidneys. It can also be a pulled …muscle. Try applying bengay to it, and see if it alleviates the pain.
your kidney.Probably an infection.Check with your doctor
I believe that this could be siatica.…
The position of your pain is the left hand side of the abdomen cavity. The origin of the pain could therefore be the lower portion of the stomach , the liver, the transv…erse colon or the descending colon. Whatever the pain actually comes from, go to see a gereral surgeon to find out the cause of it, bearing in mind that consultation with a surgoen does not necessarily involve surgery. The reason I suggest consultation with a general surgeon is that in many caeses involving abdominal pain, patients are often referred by the gereral practitioner to see a general surgeon to find out the exact cause of the pain if the former casts any doubt about the cause of it. Why not then consult a general surgeon straight away to save time and money and restore your health sooner ?
What causes pain on right side waist between the side and back. It's where u put your hand on waist but toward back?
Very likely that right side pain is from overexercising or from pulling a muscle. It could be a kidney stone, I suppose. Kidney stone pain is often accompanied by pain in the …groin area, and often occurs in the morning before you get up. Drink 2 glasses of water in the morning and another 70 to 80 ounces of water during the day . . . if it is a kidney stone, this may wash it out of the kidney and ureter without a lot of pain. If it isn't a kidney stone, the water is an extremely healthful thing to do for everyone!
Anything going on in the left side, is always a good reason for concern that where your heart is. If its sharp pain, located front & center in your chest, or takes your breath… away, get to a Dr or emergency room & have it checked out. If the pain is low & in the back just above the belt line, It could be your kidneys. If you drink a lot of tea, coffee or soda & no water, just stop those for a few days & drink only & lots of water for 2 days & see if that flushes the kidneys. That is very common, specially in young people.
The cause of the pain could be several things: an injury to the muscles, kidney infection, gall bladder infection, etc. The only way to know the specific cause is to be examin…ed by a doctor.
You get back pain caused by stress. if you are going through tough times in your family , at work or school ,etc..... It is likely being centered there and is putting stress i…n that certain area. believe it or not it can also be caused by sensitivities to certain foods. it can come with symptoms such as vomiting. it can also be because your back is misaligned. New answer: Muscle stress causes back pain and it can be one-sided. Muscles get stressed from over-use or under-use or from poor habits. For example, a poor habit might be always leaning to the same side with the same foot curled under your body. You might also have scoliosis or curvature of the spine. But it usually has a cause and the cause is most often treatable. Sometimes it is caused by bones that aren't perfectly shaped or a short leg or a pelvic bone that is smaller on one side than the other. It can also be caused by poor habits, like leaning to the same side when you watch tv. The muscles in the front of your body can also 'refer' pain to the back of your body.
Answer I will be going to the Doc. I am scared - it could be anything from a cyst to a cancerous lump!
If the pain is sharp, and traces down the left side of the spine to the lower back, across the waist and hip, across the top of the thigh and down the inner knee, the problem …is the L3/L4 disk pressing on the spinal nerve at that point. It typically sharp at the mid and lower back, and burning as it travels further, though it will occasionally be sharp all the time too. You can literally trace the nerve pathway with your finger by following the pain if it's bad enough. ---- I have this pain at the moment, I had it several years ago and it lasted for months I had a gluten intollerance test and it told me that I was intollerant to gluten, I cut out gliuten and within 2 wekd it had gone, its now come back although I dont eat anything with gluten in it.
