Hi.  I just posted a comment for my symptoms and noticed your posting.  It could very well be kidney stones or maybe an infection in your kidneys.  I hope your appointment goes well and good luck.

Hi,

Where is the pain exactly located?

Does the pain involve the low back , the right side of the abdomen , the right shoulders?

Any other associated symptoms like bloatedness, burping, early sensation of abdominal fullness?

Any pain in urination ?

Will be expecting your answers.

Hi,

Have you consulted with a urologist already?

Have you been diagnosed with a kidney infection or problem before?

Firstly, we have to establish that the pain is due to a urinary tract disorder. A complete history and physical examination will help. A baseline urinalysis and 24 urine collection will guide your physician.

Secondly, it is possible that the pain may be due to an underlying musculoskeletal problem or nerve related pain as you have described it to be burning and aggravated by position.

Any previous trauma ? Have you engaged in strenuous or vigorous activities prior to the onset of your condition?

After lifting something very heavy on Sunday I have severe pain and I think it is the left kidney. I have tried heat and cold to help but nothing works. The pain is getting worse instead of better. When I cough or even breath in deeply it is terrible. Could I maybe have ruptured the kidney?
