Having flank pain not constant and no other symptoms, could this be kidney related? I feel fine other than the occasional discomfort on right side

In any case you need to get checked for possible stone. ...Read more

Dull, achy pains: Given only a description of dull achey flank pains on both sides with soreness, I have to surmise that you have strained your abdominal muscles. This is usually caused by excess bending or twisting movements, and is usually much worse with bending and twisting. Motrin will help this a lot. It is unlikely to be a kidney problem because kidney problems usually happen on only one side at a time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
