severe pain in lower right back and hip area
I had a catscan and they found several bilateral pelvic phleboliths.  I have severe  pain in lower back and sometimes in hip area.  It feels like a severe kidney infection, but there were no stones or infection present.  The pain is in my right side even though they found a cyst on my left kidney but there is no pain on left side.  Can the bilateral pelvic phleboliths be causing this pain and if so is there anything the doctors can do?

Hi there!

Phleboliths are unlikely to cause pain. Possibilities causes of the symptoms that may need to be considered include postural issues, joint inflammation/ degeneration, neuro-muscular causes such as muscle sprain, nerve impingement, injuries to muscles/ ligaments, inflammations, spinal causes such as degeneration, micronutrient deficiencies, referred pain from other regions etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician/ internist initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought. Meanwhile you could take some tylenol/ OTC NSAIDS and see of these seem to help.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
