severe sharp pain in lower back right side comes in waves
I am getting very severe and sharp pain in my kidney area or right lower back and side area. It seems to come in waves and nothing in particular seems to trigger it or make it better. What might it be?
A tardy Welcome to the Pain Management Forum. I am glad that you found us and took the time to post!!
There are several things that could be responsible for your pain. The obvious given what you stated .... moving Kidney Stones! However if it is Kidney Stones be prepared for that pain to become extreme and possible send you to seek immediate medical attention.
It's been several days since you posted how are you doing today? Again if it a kidney stone the pain can wax and wain as the stone moves and then can stop. If it's a very tiny stone, gravel.. you may pass it and the pain will suddenly stop as quickly as it began.
