Hi and thanks for the question,
pain round the region you describe could either be of abdominal or pleural origin.
The pain, nausea and going to the back could suggest an acute renal colic. This is very classical and diagnosis will require and abdominal ultrasound and a urine examination.
If not, a pneumonia could mimic these same symptoms and a chest X ray could be very helpful.
Consulting our primary care physician for an abdominal ultrasound and chest X ray., blood tests and urine \tests, coupled with a good and comprehensive clinical evaluation are key steps in making an appropriate diagnosis and drawing up the needed treatment plan.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
