Dull pain on sides, occurs on standing or bending, skin does not hurt to touch. Cure?

Hi. I m having dull pains that come and go on my sides. The pain seems to shift around a bit. It doesn t bother me when I m sitting only when I stand or bend. It will be there for a little bit maybe a week or so and then completely go away for awhile. My skin doesn t hurt to the touch, it s just a dull pain inside. Thanka

Hi and thanks for the query,
it shall be worth while knowing whether you engaged yourself in an intense activity, or a physical activity you are nor used to lately. This could simply be a mechanical pain. The pain onset, whether very acute or gradual or of fundamental importance. Accompanying symptoms like fever, cough, fatigue are important to exclude an infectious origin. A physical examination shall be required to determine any costovertebral angle or abdominal tenderness. A urine test might be required to exclude urogenital causes of side pain like renal colic. An abdominal ultrasound could be needed at some point during the evaluation process. I suggest you take an appointment with your primary care physician for a proper evaluation.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
