I gave up smoking 4 months ago after 33 years. I am getting a lot of lower back pain & sharp pain on LH in back of rib cage. Is this detox & kidney?

Congratulations on: Freeing yourself of smoking! Please don't slip back or smoke even one because it leads to the next. See your doc about the back pain which is likely unrelated to smoking cessation. Peace and good health.

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: 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.

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.

Dad has pain in left lower back. Says it's back pain, muscle feels tense around his rib cage. But the pain is not always there. Is it his kidneys?

See below: Back pain is one symptom felt by somebody who has kidney stone or mass but musculoskeletal pain is a more common cause of back pain, especially with muscle spasms. Have his dr examine him to get accurate diagnosis and proper treatment. Take care.

Headaches lower back pain left rib pain feel bloated and super full but am not what's going on? : (

Back Pain: The pains you're describing may be related to your kidneys. I think you should have this checked out with your primary care doctor. They can get some simple tests to figure out what is going on and make sure it is nothing dangerous or that needs immediate attention.

? Pregnancy Test: You are a little vague about the time period of thiese conditions occurring relative to your periods, use of contraception, and amount of weight gain. Any other symptoms like breast tenderness or enlargement? Start with a home pregnancy test and seek medical attention for a full exam.

Muscle pain: With a trigger point, you could have a rib out of place or have rib muscle pain. Seek out a good doctor of osteopathic medicine (D.O.) or a good chiropractic physician. They should be able to help.

Possible kidney ston: Others include gallbladder stone disease. The kidney stone pain may radiate downward towards the groin and may show blood in urine (dark urine). Gallbladder pain may radiate upward towards shoulder blades. Since you mentioned "severe", you probably need to visit the emergency department for x ray or ultrasound, urinalysis, and pain control.

Burning sensation near right hip and and just below right ribs and constant lower back pain for years. Feels worse when sitting down.

Back problem: I suggest being seen by a physician. Your pain could be from your back, particularly because of the burning quality of your pain, and because it is worse in certain positions.

Dull lower back pain just under ribs on left side. Only feels slightly better when laying down on my right side. Muscle spasms in the left leg also.

Back pain.: It is hard to tell without adequate physical examination. This could be due many possibilities. A muscle spasm, strain muscle, kidney stone, pinched nerve due to disc problem. I suggest you check with your doctor for adequate medical history and physical examination. This will lead to an adequate diagnosis and treatment. Hope you feel better soon.
