For about a month now, I have been experiencing a mild burning sensation
in my lower back, right side, about the kidney area but a little lower.
Aspirin, or Tylenol reduces this feeling but it continues to come and go.
I have no other symtoms like burning urination, pain, etc. Any ideas of
what this might be? Thank you.
It is not at all clear from your posting as to whether this is a neurological disorder or not.
The kidney idea is a possibility but in absence of other symptoms of kidney problems makes this less likely.
The things which would make us think of a neurological (spinal ) problem would be if the pain / burning obviously started at the spinal column and radiated out, if it was related to exertion, posture or exacerbated by coughing or straining, or if there was an patch of altered sensitivity to touch on the skin in that area.
Since you report none of these things I would suggest that you start by consulting a primary care physician and let him/her refer you to the appropriate specialty if necessary, based on the results of a more detailed history and the outcome of a physical examination.
I have the same problem, it has been about 3 weeks now, I suddenly feel a warm sensation over my right kidney. It last for about 5 seconds and then fades away. It comes and goes periodically throughout the day. I do not have any pain or any other symptoms. Any ideas?
