Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
A tearing burning sensation on the side just above the hip can be due to pinched nerves, an abscess, a muscle pull, a kidney problem or gas in colon. It could also be a kidney stone. It is very important you consult a doctor. A CT scan of the abdomen may be required. Hope this helps. Take care!
