Unpinch the nerve.: Sounds like you have a disk herniation. As long as the pain is tolerable, and you do not have progressive increasing weakness, or lose the ability to control the bladder or bowels, the vast majority of disk herniations can be treated without surgery. I recommend you get a good exam by a spine specialist, then follow instructions on use of medications, stretchs and activities modifications. ...Read more

3 yrs heavy drinking, 1 yr smoking, bloodtest shows kidney/liver function ok. Dull pain in lower right back, burning in abdomen. Chronic pancreatitis?

Impossible to say: If you had blood tests because of these symptoms, I would hope that they also did tests for pancreatic damage, particularly a lipase (or an older test, amylase). Are you still drinking, despite the pain? If so, I would be very concerned. Easiest way to find if they are related is to stop and see what happens. Gastritis or even a peptic ulcer is a more common problem, and alcohol makes it worse. ...Read more

Passing gas, burping at times, having bowel movements, dull pain upper right side of back. Started Prilosec OTC 14 day three days ago, no insurance help?

It is likely that: You have some gallbladder or liver issues that would require help from a healthcare provider. There are OTC meds such as Mylanta or Maalox that you can get for gas and indigestion, which could relieve some of our symptoms. However if you continue to have these problems despite temporary relief from the OTC meds above, you will need an ultrasound and some blood tests to rule out more serious Dx. ...Read more
