I get a pain in the middle of my back and intensifies when I lean fwd. Is this just a simple muscle/backache or could this be symptoms of kidney pain?

Musculoskeletal pain: Any pain in the back associated with movement is very likely musculoskeletal related. Try heating pads, topical analgesics, or a short 3-5 days of Tylenol or Advil or Aleve. Hope you feel better, if not see your primary doctor for exam and possible X-Ray ...Read more

I have a cyst in my right kidney dimension 1 litre or 12 cm diameter. I also have low back pain due to 2 damaged discs. My questions are: 1 - Does the cyst impact the back pain negatively? 2 - Should I have the cyst removed? Any surgery risk?

I have a cyst in my right kidney dimension 1 litre or 12 cm diameter. I also have low back pain due to 2 damaged discs. My questions are:
1 - Does the cyst impact the back pain negatively?
2 - Should I have the cyst removed? Any surgery risk?

Hard to say-maybe: That's an impressive sized cyst in the kidney & may be big enough to refer pain itself to the back. The presence of degenerative disks in the back likely means overall pain is a combination of both problems happening at once. Surgical risks are present in ALL cases where anesthesia is given.

Kidney/hip/back pain 5 weeks after stent inserted due to kidney stone, am I passing it? (Stent still in)

See answer: Patients with ureteral stents should be informed that they can expect a "variable" degree of urinary urgency, frequency, discomfort/pain, and visible blood in urine. Younger pts tend to experience these symptoms more often. Urinary tract infection, migration or obstruction of the stent, or problems related to residual stones or surgery need to be ruled out for fever or persistent, bothersome pain. ...Read more

I have kidney stone in mid calics. due to that i have back pain and pain in testicles. but when i have sex this pain subsides.pls suggest is it normal?

Normal: The brain's perception of pain is a complicated phenomenon. Endorphin response to sex likely suppresses your perception of pain, however, the act of having sex probably has no effect on the actual presence, movement, or associated inflammation of the stone. ...Read more
