User :   I am generally scared because i have back pain near mid rib. Since its near the kidney area, i assumed its a kidney associated. My creatinine was 1.0 i had a check done. Do i need to examine my kidney because i had already done a full check up in oct-2009 and all was normal as per the doctor who consulted
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :

Doctor :

User :   since the past 4 days

Doctor :  
and is become more
User :   after i played squash
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :  
are you having any problems with urination?
User :   no the last check up was in oct - 2009. I had my creatinine checked on the next day after i felt the pain
User :   no actually not. I urinate 4 to 5 times during the day and once before i sleep
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
then it might be just a muscle pull after you played squash
User :   i have gout though
Doctor :  
ok
User :   for the past 8 months and have been on allopurinol
Doctor :  
you can do hot water fomentation for the pain in back
User :   i have had hair loss for the past 8 months too, thats why i saw the symptoms an
Doctor :   ok
User :   and thought maybe something is wrong with my kidney
Doctor :  
you can still do a repeat check too, along with a examination for the pain
Doctor :  
if the pain is not getting settled with the hot water fomentation
Doctor :  
then it is recommended that you get a examination done
User :   ok - I will get it done
Doctor :  
and also if there is no issues with the muscle pull, then you should get a repeat check for kidney
Doctor :  
which should include blood tests and a scan
Doctor :  
have you followed what i have said?
User :   but i had a scan in october and all was normal
Doctor :   ok
User :   then can someting happen in 3 months
User :   isn't it too little time for some kidney problem to develop
Doctor :  
if something has to go wrong it can go wrong within a month too, especially with small kidney stones
Doctor :  
so it is better not to take things lightly
User :   there was no kidney stone too, ok
Doctor :  
rather act upon the symptoms and see to it that they are not serious
Doctor :  
Is there any thing else I can help you with?
User :   nothing else, so i better go for a check up??
Doctor :   yes, it is good that you get a checkup done
