User :   over the christmas period i had lower back pain on both sides which then moved to the lower right hand side of my stomach i was diagnosed with a kidney infection. The pain got worse and i stayed in hospital and they could not find the cause of the pain. Every now and then the pain would re occur and then go away. Then in may the pain come back very serve for 3 days and once again i was in hospital and they could not find the source of the problem. I have had many different blood tests internal scan external scan tried to stay off dirrerent foods and i am fed up with keep getting the constant ache in the same place at the bottom of my stomach i had a operation 2 years ago to correct acid reflux i wounder if this could be part of the reason why i am on the contraceptive injection. or could it be a grumbling appendix?
