no, no trauma. It started hurting bad about a month ago. It would hurt, (on a scale from 1 - 10, 10 being the worst) a5 and shot up to 8. It would hurt once in a while, about a 2 -3 once or twice a month going back about four or five months now

Brief Answer: Possible causes Detailed Answer: Hello From the kind of pain that you have described, renal/ureteric calculus should have been the most possible diagnosis. However as the USG has come normal, the possibility of stones is negligible. The other two possibilities could be 1) Muscle sprain 2) Colon spasm The first one can occur due to any awkward posture or movement. It can occur any time during day to day activities. If it is a muscle sprain then the same should resolve with pain killers and muscle relaxant. To my patients i generally prescribe brufen MR and this acts very nicely. The other diagnosis of colon spams is not very common, although possible. If it is a colon spasm then the pain should respond to dicycloamine. You can discuss these two possibilities and medications with your doctor who can help you with the prescriptions. Regards Dr. Srikanth Reddy
