I have a chronic lower back pain. Before my back gets seized and I'm in excruciating pain, I start walking tilted to my left side?

Pain in right shoulder radiating down right arm to elbow. Excruciating pain when standing. Only get relief if I sit on couch leaning back?

In this case it sounds more neurological - maybe a compressed nerve. This because it is relieved with the position change. One that would likely reduce pressure on nerves radiating from the neck down arm. ...Read more

4.5cm stone. Went to ER. Had a great doc. Felt better when discharged. Excruciating pain is back. Should I go back to ER? CHartnett

CM?!? Or MM?: Likely a 4.5mm stone (just feels like measured in meters while passing), as has chance to pass on own. Pain comes with stone moving. If pain med helps make it bearable, then stay & it will stop when stone in bladder. If severe / comes with nausea & vomiting / pain med doesn't help / pain persists, then go to ER for relief. If 4.5cm, then go to ER as it's a losing battle. Good luck! ...Read more
