I just started today feeling pain in my lower back (kidney area) that wraps around to the side and sometimes the front. It's constant what should I do?

Low back pain: The kidneys are a lot higher in the back than most would think. If you put your finger in the pit of your stomach and draw a line around back on both sides, that's the normal position of the kidneys. If your pain is in that area, then it could be your kidneys, if it is lower and very likely could be muscular. Either way if it persists or increases in frequency duration severity have it checked out. ...Read more

Experiencing some pain internally (not severe) but a little discomfort in kidney area from back lower side which to be said having stone. Any remedies?

? question: Cannot tell exactly what the question refers to as worded, nut if you have a diagnosed kidney stone, that can certainly account for your pain in that area.

If pain severe or no relief, you may need to see a Urologist to assure you do not get a back-up of fluids into your kidney, thus requiring a stent as well. ...Read more

What is left sided back pain in the kidney area that comes and goes in 4-6 hrs. A sudden sharp pain that no amount of stretching or heat gets rid.

Stones vs. Spasms: Clearly back problems can result in flank region discomfort. However my concern in that location is always whether or not the symptoms could be originating from the kidneys. Kidney stones cause a condition called renal colic. In renal colic severe pain which comes and goes periodically can occur. A simple urine analysis will help to determine whether or not this might be the problem. Good luck. ...Read more

Here are some. ..: If the pain is indeed related with stone passing through left ureter, as suggested by clinical picture and confirmed with imaging study such as CT, the surest step to rid it is intervention through urethra, bladder, up to ureter & kidney.
