Why am I experiencing soreness after vomiting and bilateral pain in kidney region?
User rating for this question
I developed sever vomiting and diarrhea 36 hours ago No vomiting for 10 hours at this time. My question is about abdominal pain. I have bilateral pain where my kidneys are and the pain only happens when I move but the subsides a few minutes later. I know to expect some general soreness after vomiting but this is unlike anything I have ever experienced.

Brief Answer: muscle catch/intestinal spasm/infection Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX XXXX, thanks for using XXXXXXX I went through the query and understood your concern. The bilateral pain abdomen after episodes of diarrhea and vomiting may be due to muscle spasm due to sudden contraction of muscles during vomiting or due to infection that may be the reason for vomiting and diarrhea or to intestinal contraction causing spasmodic pain. Since the pain is bilateral its very unlikely to involve kidney as most of the time unilateral involvement occurs if kidney is affected. So for now you need to take plenty of fluids with electrolytes along with antispasmodic drugs. If infected (presents with fever, pain abdomen, foul smelling stool may or may not be associated with mucus and blood) then you need antibiotic for its management. If the pain is due to muscle catch then NSAIDs with musclerelaxant like chlorzoxazone will help you. Hope this explanation is both informative and helpful to you. Feel free to ask if any related query and I will be glad to answer them. Wish you faster recovery and good health. Regards
