Back/groin pain: If Gilbert''s check it is not gallbladder.Also check for appendicitis, pregnancy,clots in lung, autoimmune. May be vaginal infections mycoplasma/ureoplasma (respond to Zithro /doxy). Sometimes gastritis from ibuprophen and or H pylori can cause back pain. Recheck that it is not kidney stone/kidney infection. Check ESR, ANA,pelvic, d-dimer. Follow with a doctor/urgent care/ER
