6 mths post hysterectomy. Lower abdomenal and mid back pain on right side. Pain is horrible. I went to ER and after CT and blood work I have NO answes?

Integrative pain Rx: The ERs job is to rule out emergency. They did. But you still have pain. 1st thing is to go back to your original surgeon, or another surgeon who is recommended, to re-eval and review the scan. They might want another scan. If everything turns up negative, don't despair. It's good not to have a "surgical" problem. There are more subtle approaches to use. Let me know if you're stuck ...Read more

Unlikely: The most common cause for such pains is muscle pull or spasms. This would usually settle down with rest and mild pain medicine. If the pain does not go away in 2-3 weeks, or becomes more severe, then you must see a doctor to check you for something more serious(like you are concerned about) ...Read more

Back pain is : Very common. The best thing you can do is to stay as active as possible – even if you are in pain. People with low back pain recover faster if they stay active.

You can try using ibuprofen or any over the counter pain relief. See your doctor if you don’t improve ...Read more

Muscle strain: The usual tx for a muscle strain (oral meds) is a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug (nsaid). Prednisone is a steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. This would be the logic of it working in your injury. Of course wet warm soaks , etc wouldn't be out of the question either. ...Read more

E.R. checks appendix: Lower right abdominal discomfort can be from many things. For pain there, appendicitis is always a concern (pain usually worsens over time, with fever coming on). If one is constipated for several days, stool can back up all the way to the right side, and cause discomfort or pain. Gallstones and kidney stones can also cause pain. In such cases, a primary care doctor or an ER doctor can evaluate. ...Read more

Need Medical checkup: If you suspect any mass in your abdomen which is causing pain, you should have a medical check up. Go see your doctor immediately and have a medical examination.

Pain in mid up back becoming worse. Right side flank pain getting worse. Ana positive 1:640 speckled. Ana panel does not suggest lupus. Any ideas?

Pain in mid up back becoming worse. Right side flank pain getting worse.  Ana positive 1:640 speckled. Ana panel does not suggest lupus. Any ideas?

Not lupus: ANA 1:640 is not significant. The pain could be due to muscles, disk disease, or kidney disease. Lack of kidney stone makes kidney source of pain less likely, even less, if no evidence of infection on urinalysis. However, with negative work up including ultrasound, and pain getting worse, a ct scan is needed. Another possibility is disk disease that may need an MRI to prove. ...Read more

Sharp l. flank pain since 1.1.15, nausea, extreme fatigue, headaches, mid/lower rq abdominal pain since 16:30 today. Avoiding ER like plague. Any idea?

Flank pain - kidneys: It seems like the pain may have moved from L to R side. Generally, flank pain points to a problem in the kidneys; in the absence of signs of an infection (fever, etc.) I think the most likely cause is kidney stones. While 1 may have bothered the left kidney for a while, another 1 formed in the right & moved down (trying to pass), but got stuck. TTYD & ask to see a Urologist. Best of luck, thanks. ...Read more
