I have back pain due to gas.... Upper back is in pain. But gets way after too many bumpings..

Get an exam by ur Dr: Follow up with your doctor. This should prompt an abdominal pain workup, which might start with evaluating for gall bladder disease (stone, infection, or inflammation of the gb). Other things like kidney stones should be ruled out as well, including pregnancy, ovarian cysts, fibroids. You shouldn't be worried, but concerned enough to get this taken care of. Abdominal pain has a large ddx.

See your doctor: An examination by your doctor may be a good option although if you were to get hydrated VERY WELL over next couple of days, try some heat over the back/flank areas for 20-30 min. At a time and see what happens over next couple of days then, you may improve. If not, to the doctor who may want to also test you for possible infection of the kidneys or bladder.

Inflammation: Alcohol is a poison and affect all the cells it interacts with, including stomach and intestinal cells. It would be advisable for you to not drink. Alcohol never did any one any good ever. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

Suddenly (~ 1 month) had extremely smelly gas & some lower back pain, can't link it to a food intolerance as it's constant. What could this be?

Probably GI: Gas should not be related pain originating from the lumbar spine. Smelly gas and pain is often related to a gastrointestinal problem. The most probably diagnosis is giardiasis. This can be treated with antibiotics (i.e. Oral flagyl).

Mid and upper back pain on left side gas and hick ups and pain in kidney?

Mid and upper back pain on left side gas and hick ups and pain in kidney?

May be gas in large: This may be what we call the "splenic flexure syndrome" where we get gas in the large intestine where the intestine flexes from the tranversecolon to the left descending colon - across the top of the abdomen and down to the left side. The intestine turns under where the spleen is and that is why it is called the splenic flexure where the intestine turns. Intestine gas can build up = pain.
