This pain started back in April. My back hurt on my left side just under the bottom of my rib cage. At first I thought it was a Kidney infection and went to emergency. They did a urine test ..... came back ok. Then they did an x-ray of my ribs.....came back fine. So I went home after being told to go see my family doctor if the pain did not go away. Pain felt like a muscle spasm. Would come and go. After a few weeks pain was still there and had also moved into my front abdominal left side which felt like a burning sensation. Doctor sent me for a bone scan and an ultra sound. both tests came back fine. Then the doctor told me it was arthritis and aches and pains and put me on celebrex. It has been one week and the celebrex is not working. The pain comes when I am standing still in one position and used to go away if I layed down. Now it comes on when I am laying down, standing in one position, and sitting. My left side is also hurting. Anyone else have this same problem?

  • This is a long shot, but maybe something wrong with the blood circulation? Deep vein trombosis in left renal vein? Hope you soon get help and feel better!
