Lower back pain around my left kidney, twist rib. How to get cured?

Hi. I have been feeling unweel for 6 weeks. I have lower back pain around my left kidney . Which has caused a rib to twist behind my left shoulder blade causing pain when lifting items. I have had a loss of appitite for this time and subsequently have lost 4.9kg during the last 14 days. i have noticed that i have been brusing easily. I have also been extremely tired during this time and have been sleeping lots. generally getting 9-10 hours sleep a night with a nap either late afternoon or early evening most days for 2 hours. I have still be going to work but find to hard to concentrate during the afternoon. In nov 2010 i was diognosed with glandular fever . and have struggled to overcome this. last week i had a blood and urine test which came back all clear. I know there is still something wong. I have started to isolate myself from friends as i dont have the energy to see them.

Welcome to Healthcaremagic,
You have the following symptoms
1. Lower abdominal pain
2. pain in left shoulder while lifting
3. Prominent Loss of weight and loss of appetite
4. Tiredness
5. Excessive sleep

Blood and urine report -Negative
From your symptoms, I suspect you may be suffering from either Genito Urinary Tuberculosis or Intra Abdominal tumour.

So it is advisable to do furher investigstions
1.Ultrasound abdomen and Pelvis
2.Mantoux test(Tuberculin test)
3. Complete blood count
4. Stool for occult blood
5. CT and MRi scan if Necessary
Before all investigations, You need proper physical examination by a doctor to find any enlargement of intra abdominal organs.

Please check your Blood pressure. As most of the patints with Renal disease have increased blood pressure.

Consult your Family physician as earlier as possible.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
