My right upper back is hurting, what can cause this? Also I have no kidney it was removed last year for cancer. Thank you

Muscle strain, or...: The most common reason is muscle spasm in that area caused by your posture or a repetitive activity. But since you've had cancer, we have to keep that in mind. Try some gentle stretches, massage, and a heating pad, and make an appointment to follow-up with your oncologist. Also, pay attention to your body mechanics! ...Read more

Dyspepsia.: The general term for your experience would be dyspepsia which includes issues with the organs of the upper digestive tract. My first thought would be gallbladder as interestingly it can refer pain to the right upper back. This could also be duodenitis or gastritis or esophagitis, too. Some testing may be required to really know what's going on. ...Read more

Female 37. Upper right back pain, radiates down to arm 5 wks.  There's a spot in my right upper back where the pain originates but I can't pinpoint it?

Google:Back Knobber: Don't fret. This is fairly common, based on what you've described. Usually from an area of stress in the muscle or possibly inflammation of one of the small bursa back there. Very annoying. The pain can radiate into the neck or, less commonly, the arm. It would help to be checked for "trigger points." If there, there are various ways of dealing with it. You could try yourself with a Back Knobber. ...Read more

What are the synptoms of a pinched  nerve in the right upper  back..Also whete to go chiropractor or doctor.?

Pain, numb, weak: A pinched nerve in the neck (cervical radiculopathy) causes pain, paresthesias, numbness, and/or weakness. The radiation pattern is dependent upon which nerve root is being entrapped. For instance, a c5 radiculopathy can present as neck pain with radiation into the medial scapular border and deltoid. It would rarely go below the elbow. Being a doctor I am a bit biased but would rec a doc. ...Read more

I had blood in my urine could it be that I'm taking calcium? I also had pain on my right upper back I was told it was kidney stone. Is this true?

I had blood in my urine could it be that I'm taking calcium? I also had pain on my right upper back I was told it was kidney stone. Is this true?

Is that so?: If an imaging study was performed that showed you have a kidney stone, then that's probably why you have the blood in your urine. If there's no imaging study, you don't know if it's a kidney stone or not, and getting imaged would probably be worthwhile. Why are you taking calcium? I can't recommend it as a general 'women's health' measure especially if there's a question of nephrolithiasis. ...Read more

Causes of deep burning sensation in right side of chest and right upper back/middle back? On and off, don't last long. Don't think it's heartburn

Causes of deep burning sensation in right side of chest and right upper back/middle back? On and off, don't last long. Don't think it's heartburn

Needs to be watched: In your age group, the most common causes are musculoskeletal problems that usually self-resolve. Esophageal spasm can cause deep middle pain. Acid reflux is also a possibility despite taking tums (calcium carbonate). Young women who are smokers and are taking oral contraceptive pills are at risk for lung blood clot that can cause chest pain. Heart issues need always to be ruled out but are unlikely at your age. ...Read more

My right upper back part of my gums have been itching profusely. I've managed to itch them. I've also noticed a little white sore or bubble. Soar gums?

Possible infection?: It could be an infection, so therefore have it checked out as soon as possible by a dentist. Although it could be something else, and may not even need any treatment, it's better to be safe than sorry. You don't want to take the chance on a much more serious flare-up, especially during the night or the weekend when no dentist is available to help resolve the issue. ...Read more

Pain/stiffness in upper back/neck. What should I do? I'm having severe pain/stiffness in my upper-left back. It's extremely difficult to turn my head, and the pain has spread to my upper chest and is beginning to affect my right upper-back/shoulder. The p

I : I recommend seeing your primary care physician for proper assessment. There are many causes of neck/shoulder pain and stiffness including arthritis, strained muscle, rotator cuff teat, etc. The initial treatment for most of these problems are rest for a few days, regular anti-inflammatory medications (if you have no medical disorders prohibiting them, such as ulcers, kidney failure, allergy, but not limited to these) and then physical therapy. People who do not respond to these treatments should see a pain doctor, orthopedics or spine surgeon. Good luck! ...Read more

Upper back pain: Upper back pain involves the thoracic vertebral bodies, the rib heads that attach to the spine, the tendons and ligaments that insert on/in the spine, and discs between the vertebrae. The tendons and ligaments become more lax during pregnancy in preparation for the baby going through the birth canal. Massage and ice may relieve the pain. See a spine specialist for a diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

C 5 disc herniated. It mainly effected my right upper back, shoulder, and arm. it suddenly worsened. both sides effected, arms numb hurts to breath,?

Time for am MRI: This is called "progression of disease" and is common but hurting to breath is unusual unless the breathing caused neck pain and it's really movement that causes the pain. True numbness is unusual; is it "pins and needles" that you feel in your arms or are you truly unable to feel anything in your arms? True loss of sensation represents injury to the central spinal cord. See doc ASAP. ...Read more
