Constant pain in lower right back side, swollen and sore. What could it be ?

I have pain in the lower right back and side and it was constant for about 55 days and now it is not as worse as it has been but it is still their and it feels like something is there like swollen and soar and the pain is achy out to the tip of my hip and back infact when the pain is really bad i can press on the lower right back and hip and it hurts. Had blood in the urine but have had an abdominal ultrasound and they say that is fine no kidney stone and also they said the gallbladder and liver are normal. Blood work was done and all was normal he checked a number of things but was mainly interested in my liver and he said the numbers were good. Went to the gyn she did an vaginal ultrasound trying to find out why i had strange looking and thick blood, i had started my period but she wanted to check me to make sure i did not have a female problem and that was from the pain. She said the blood was thick and a little odd looking and it was heavy, so she sent me to have an ultrasound then and they said everything was normal. I have a pap next month. Sometimes the pain will run around into the groin and top of right thigh. Lately at night i have been having cramping in my hips and thighs while sleeping. Also when i had a bowel movement it did not hurt to go but right after a bowel movement maybe 5 to 10 minutes after the pain seemed to be aggrevated and i would start hurting a little worse. I have had my appedix out so we know it is not that. I have had some right side pain off and on since i was in high school which has been since 92 but i have not had it in a couple of years until. it came on me all of a sudden which it has never done before and it was like a cramp under back of my right rib cage and then it moved downward above the hip and then it moved further down like it is in the lower hip and butt area, but it has not gone away and my doctor says he does not know who to send me to or what to do. I did have a very bad urinary tract infection two weeks ago that went untreated for awhile because i don t normally have systems but when they did a urine culture it came back showing a back terrier eccolocilus, this is not the right spelling i know but they said it came from the colon. I was put on 5 days of levequin and the pain was somewhat better and know i still have the pain but it is not as bad as before. Do you have any idea what it could be. This is so frustrating. I have had about 10 to 12 cat scans over the years because of these doctors sending me in not knowing that this is harmful and could cause cancer so now the doctors dont want to do a scat scan which is understandable since i have had so many. What else can be done for me.

Thanks for writing to us.
Pain in the lower back on the right side could be due to a muscular pain, disc prolapse, a pelvic pathology or a renal calculus. Investigations like MRI scan and ultrasound scan will help in the proper diagnosis.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.F.
Since 55 days you had pain in the right lower part of back. There is blood in the urine. You had urinary tract infection, with E.Coli.sTill you didn't have any relief, so it appears to be the ascending infection U.T.I. to the kidnies. I advise you to consult a nephrologist for diagnosis and treatment.
There is aggrevation of pain 10 minutes after defecation, it could be be due to release of pressure from the kidney.
Wishing for a quick recovery.
Best regards.
