Have sporadic lower right back pain at belt line. Sometimes it radiates to right front at/or below belt line. Sometimes notice it when I move. Is it common fir pain to radiate to front? Seems to be on belt line or below. Dull ache.

If back pain is: Caused by rib pain, the pain can travel along the nerve of the rib to the front. We see this with rib bruises and fractures. Sprains or strains of the connective tissue can also cause radiating pain. Shingles can do this too although the pain may precede the appearance of the rash. Of course, any unexplained pain that persists should be checked out by a doctor. ...Read more

I've had a sharp pain, lower right in front, just 2 or 3 inches above the beltline. It's happened 3 or 4 times in the last week and lasts 10-60 sec.?

Many possibilities: Sharp pain only may be due to muscle strain or an inguinal hernia. It doesn't sound like you have appendicitis, as you'd be more ill. Other causes of pain there include intussusception, Crohn's disease, etc. Your doctor can take a more thorough history and perform the needed testing, perhaps starting with an ultrasound. ...Read more
