What could cause pains in my sides and my lower back an what could cause me to crave grapes an corn flakes late at night?

Haven't heard of any: Haven't heard of any disorders that would cause aches and pains in a person's flank areas and lower back area, while at the same time causing a craving for grapes and corn flakes late at night.

The only way to know this isn't cancer is to take another picture. If it disappears (it usually does) then you know it's tissue overlap, not cancer. I hope this helps! ...Read more

No good answer: It's easy to say, "don't eat grapes and plums!" but, honestly, i'm not aware of any explanation as to why those fruits would precipitate pvcs and i suspect the association may be coincidental. Pvcs are common and can be bothersome - see a family doc or cardiologist. ...Read more
