I have back pain and itching on my lower right side around the Kidney. The itching sensation is inside not on the outside skin???

I have back pain and itching on my lower right side around the Kidney. The itching sensation is inside not on the outside skin???

Likely skin...: Itching will almost always be from an external stimulus. It shouldn't be related to any internal organs.
If that was the case you would have other symptoms as well such as severe flank pains, fevers, blood in the urine etc. ...Read more

I had protected sex with woman with hsv2 5 week ago. I have lower back pain and itch on butt. Been feeling it 4 a few weeks. Is this a sign of herpes?

I had protected sex with woman with hsv2 5 week ago. I have lower back pain and itch on butt. Been feeling it 4 a few weeks. Is this a sign of herpes?

Low risk, no worries: Herpes doesn't cause low back pain or "itch on butt". The chance of HSV2 from one episode of unprotected vaginal sex with infected partner is around 1 in a thousand. With condom protection, it's still lower. Don't worry about this. Also look at it this way: If you've had sex with say 20 different women, you can assume 3-10 of them had HSV2. The one partner you knew about isn't any more risky. ...Read more

Test for hepatitis: Pancreatic cancer is pretty rare in a 22 yr old. Hepatits, though, is pretty common and itching is often prominent. It may not show up on the first test. Keep seeing your provider, who is obviously doing all the right things. You should avoid all drugs, alcohol, and medications until this is sorted out. ...Read more

Abd pain and itching: With the negative tests you mentioned, it certainly does not sound like GB problems.
Many times withe the GBUS they will also look at the pancreas.
Your age is certainly against this being pancreatic cancer.

There are many other possibilities, and you should continue to seek medical help until the Dx is made. ...Read more

Plz help, am having yellow pee, back pain, aches (especially shoulders) itching vagina & constipation. What could this be? Am told its all in my head: (

Not in your head: It is not in your head and avoid any provider that would suggest the same. These symptoms are commonly associated with many types of infectious processes like a urinary tract infection or kidney infection. Pelvic infections such as bacterial vaginosis, chlamydia or trich can cause these symptoms as well. In any case see your doctor if the symptoms continue, . ...Read more

I have a new mole/growth on my back. No pain, no itching, pale in color or skin color you could say. Should I wait to go to the doctors?

Yes.: A new mole is not a medical emergency, but it is something that your physician should take a look at in the relatively near future to rule out any lesion that would require removal. Your description sounds likely that it is a benign mole, but having a set pf professional eyes examine it is always the best course of action. ...Read more

See your GYN ASAP: You may have a sexually transmitted infection. These certainly aren't normal things to have. In the meantime you should increase your water intake, you could try a baking soda bath soak to help calm your vulvar skin, you should get immediate attention if you have fever 100.4 or greater or chills as these could be signs of a serious infection. ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

How long does tingling happen before first outbreak of herpes. I get itching neck pain lower back pain now tingling for over 4 days now?

How long does tingling happen before first outbreak of herpes. I get itching neck pain lower back pain now tingling for over 4 days now?

This isn't herpes: For initial herpes, usually no tingling before sores appear. Tingling is mainly a symptom of recurrent herpes; in that case, it lasts only a day or two before the outbreak itself shows up. Your symptoms don't sound at all like herpes, which doesn't cause tingling without sores and rarely if ever causes low back pain. So good news, this isn't herpes. See your doctor if symptoms continue. Good luck! ...Read more
