I noticed that especially when I lie down or lean forward I have a dull ache in my right back. It is located near my waist below the ribs. It does not hurt when I externally touch or rub or massage the area. I have had it for several months. I have to wake up at night to urinate a few times but this is not new. The frequent urination has been going on since I had a hysterectomy about 20 years ago. Would you please give me some advice? Whenever I go to a doctor for something they treat me as though at best as if nothing is wrong and at the worst as though I am bothering them. Haven't been to a doctor for about 10 years because of this.
No. Thank you for the thought. I am 54 and would have thought it would have been discovered by now. I had thought it was internal organ pain ie kidney or other abdominal organ because it does not hurt when I touch/palpate the area. But your idea was a smart one I had not thought of.
I'm 38 and was only diagnosed with scoliosis after arthritis and disk degenerative disease worsened my back problems three years ago. Sometimes it can be a slight curvature that is easily missed without an X-Ray/ MRI, but one that causes pain.
Good luck in finding a solution to your problem.
I'm 21 and I have sorta the same problem. Only difference is I urine all the time and if I hold it I start getting the pain in my right side. I went to the doctor there is no sign of infection or anything. I do have scoliosis but that has nothing to do with the urination and pain in my kidney area. I don't have kidney stones or anything. So I know how you feel!
