Experiencing LRQ pain, dull, constant. First symptoms were lower back pain and mid back pain when lying on my stomach. Now, for past few weeks, pain seems concentrated LR flank, with occasional lower back pain, a feeling of pressure and URQ pain mainly later in the day. Pain not noticeable when I am lying down.

Had BC in 07. Recent bone scan was negative. Very worried. Any ideas?

Had BC in 07. Recent bone scan was negative. Very worried. Any ideas?Hi Patty,Two possibilities come to mind: (1) possible right ovarian cyst (2) possible right nephritis (kidney inflammation) and/or right renal calculi (kidney stones).Have you experienced any recent menstrual irregularity, increase in pain just before or just after your period, any dyspareunia (pelvic pain during intercourse)? Have you noticed any increase or decrease in the pain while urinating?A third less likely but not out of the question possibility is appendicitis. Has the pain been increasing in frequency, intensity and/or duration? Have you had any recent GI distress, nausea, or vomiting? Any recent fevers?Sorry for the "Twenty Questions" but good info is what gets the job done! LOLWhat you've described...going on for several weeks...is DEFINITELY neither healthy nor fun for you, Patty. I'd recommend that that you see your Doc for evaluation...probable abdominal ultrasound, urinalysis, labs, etc.Best regards,John<
