Hi I'm having right side pain under rib cage and lower back pain that is releaved when I have a bowl movement.I'm also have nausea.

Start with water

Try to increase water intake and maybe also fiber intake to get a more even consistency to your stool. If having regular bowel movements results in minimization of the discomfort then this was the problem. If symptoms persist then you probably need to see your doctor in order to evaluate for other things like gallbladder problems.

What causes a bad pain in my right shoulder blade and back pain/ seems to be the right side of my rib cage

An Ortho evaluation

Shoulder_joint
When patients have persistent pain a good physical and exam can usually help figure out the causes which in this situation can include rotator cuff issues, neck pain, a pinched nerve or muscle spasm. An Orthopedist or Physical medicine and rehab can evaluate if a MRI is necessary and when to start therapy or other treatment. There are other non Ortho causes of pain to consider like costochondritis

Trauma?

If the pain came up on its own and you didn't have an injury, it's best to see your doctor to try to find an underlying cause.

Having lower back pain on right side/hip. Also have pain in right side rib cage. Feels like I got punched or a bad bruise. What should I do?

See a Doc

Back_pain
If the pain is not going away or getting worse you should see your doctor for an evaluation which would include a physical examination. Most of the time these things tend to go away on their own but if they don't it could signify a more serious problem and should be checked out by your doctor.

This may be due to hurting ribs. Costochondritis (inflammation around Ribcage joints) can cause this.

If a person had pancreatic cancer that is causing left side pain (under the rib cage) and back pain, should you be experiencing weight loss too?

Pancreatic Cancer

Weight
Unfortunately even in this era of tremendous advances in oncology field pancreatic cancer is still a gruesome diagnosis. The most common symptom is jaundice and pain is rather rare and can be associated with very advanced disease with significant weight loss. Pain is more often associated with pancreatitis and specific tests should be done to rule out inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis).

Dr. Michael E. Ein answered:

Recurring utis, lower left back pain under rib cage, high white blood cell count in urine, nausea, weakness. Causes?

Pyelonephritis

Urine
It sounds like you have pyelonephritis/ renal infection. You could have infected kidney stones or an obstructing ureteral stone. You could have vessico-ureteral reflux or a large post void bladder residual. I would recommend that you see a urologist and get a renal/bladder ultrasound and voiding cysto-urethrogram. Good luck
