I have a stitch like pain in my right back, just at the bottom of my ribs.  I have had it for a few days.

Few possibilities: This type of pain could be caused by several things. 1. Muscle spasm, 2. Kidney stone or infection, 3. Referred pain from gallbladder/gall stone or other. If the pain is intermittent and not severe, it's more likely to be caused by a muscle spasm. If the pain is severe, if you have fever, urinary or gastrointestinal symptoms associated with it, I'd suggest getting in to see your PCP for an eval. ...Read more

I had dull pain on my right back side.
I have history of fatty liver. Is it possible that it is getting worse?

Other etiologies: Fatty liver disease usually does not cause abd pain. I would be more concerned that something else is going on. There is a broad differential including both GI and non-gi causes of this pain. One needs to consider pancrea-biliary, luminal (phenobarbital) and renal sources for the pain. You should see your doctor for further testing. ...Read more

After lifting heavy objects for about 15 minutes I get this pain in my right lower back. Goes away after lifting. Should I be concerned?

Back strain: You are starting to get a back strain which is a warning sign that you need to be careful with lifting heavy objects. Use you legs to lift heavy objects by squating down and using the force of your leg muscles to do the work. If you bend to lift, you are putting the strain on your back muscles. Exercise and do stretching to help strengthen the back as you age, and hopefully the strained muscles ...Read more

It may be just muscle strain as well. If you don't have fever, then you can try taking pain pills and drinking good amount of fluids, that might help. If pain persists more than a week, then i would suggest you to see a pcp for work up. ...Read more
