A variety of causes : there can be a lot of medical reasons for your discomfort. It can come from problems in your chest, your heart or even in the abdomen. This is something you need to have evaluated by a physician. The fact is the pain started in the back comes around to the front could suggest certain diagnoses. I think of the as pleurisy or other issues, I think of the heart such as pericarditis, and I I think of the long, such as pleurisy or other issues, I think of the heart such as pericarditis, and I think of the abdomen such as the gallbladder but there could be other reasons besides the ...Read more

5 days past ovulation. Slight cramps, slight lower back pain, slight stabbing pain on left side of pelvis and sometimes right. Possible implantation?

5 days past ovulation. Slight cramps, slight lower back pain, slight stabbing pain on left side of pelvis and sometimes right. Possible implantation?

Maybe. Maybe not.: 5 days may be a bit too soon, but life is never exact. Women don't know the exact moment they ovulate. Nobody knows the exact moment of fertilization, in a natural pregnancy. Also, no one knows exactly how long one particular fertilized egg takes to get into the uterus of one particular woman. No worries, don't think about it, and just wait for that missed period, before doing a pregnancy test. ...Read more

A few possibilities: How did you figure it was L5 &6. There are typically 5 lumbar vertebra, but some patients can have 6. Your surgeon will have to examine you, & work things up with imaging studies, given symptoms on going for over a year. A few of possible diagnosis could include sacroiliitis versus other spinal issues, vascular problem, urologic/gyn etiologies, etc. A work-up & exam will help point to a diagnosis. ...Read more

I had stabbing off and on side pain in urq for three months, sometimes in lrq and llq. Also past 12+ hours, stabbing back pain in urq. Whatcould itbe?

See professionals...: The described pain at RUQ leads to consider gall bladder stone, or kidney stone, or intermittent obstruction of ureter, or spinal nerve irritation. And the pain in rlq and llq in females leads to worry about the concern in pelvic organs. But for what you stated, it would be most reasonable to see, talk, and work with a professional to figure out what is the matter in you. Best luck... ...Read more
