Brief Answer: Causes to left flank pain going thru to back.... Detailed Answer: Hi, The left flank pain you are experiencing which is going through to your back might be related to : - constipation - urinary tract infection - genital infection - kidney stones/infection These problems are often associated with hypertension. Further tests are necessary to run in order to determine the right problem: - urine analysis - complete blood profile - abdominal ultrasound Depending on the test results, further specific treatment will be prescribed. Meanwhile, I suggest to: - monitor your blood pressure, record the results for future reference - drink more water - if having problems with constipation, drinking more water and taking foods high in fiber will ease your problems Hope it was of help!
