Pains in both Kidneys & Back


My cousin has been having pains in both kidneys and his back - he likes to drink and so stopped and when he did the pains stopped after a while...

does anyone know why this is happening with the drink? or is the drink just worsening something else?
he had blood tests that came back all normal (what tests I dont know)

I think he overweight aswell but not obese..

i had nagging lower back pain/more in the kidney area for about a year and a half before some really big stones decided to move and rock my world big time

i would advise your cousin: a scan is good but a simple xray can reveal large stones
