I cannot sleep on my right hand side as I get severe pain in my lower, right hand side of my back. This continues for a while after waking, feeling more like a general tingly dull sensation. I had a bad kidney infection a number of years ago plus some months ago I noticed I got the tingly dull sensation after having alcohol, even a small amount. Not sure if they are related, but this pain is quite debilitating when lying down. Nothing happens when I lie on the left hand side. Any ideas?
