Need some more details

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Most common causes for pain in adbdomen in young adult are gas produced due to indigestion of food and kidney stones.

The lower back pain you had in past and the one sided pain now neccesisiates need rule out kidney stones.

I would like know some more details to advice on how to proceed.

Does the pain radiate to other parts of abdomen ?
Is the pain intermittent ?
Does the pain increase or decrease in intensity. If yes, when does it happen so ?
Do you have symptoms related to indigestion ?
Are you bowel and bladder movements normal ?

Brief Answer:
Spine related problem

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the information.

The pain you describe could most probably be due to spine problems.

Most common amongst being spondylosis.

I recommend you to get an Xray of the lumbosacral spine to rule out the same. Early management can cure the condition and prevent serious complications.

Hope, I answered your query.


Wish you good health.
