Question: Pain near right kidney but had a urine test and no blood in urine. The went to Chiropractor who adjusted my spine but this gave no relief. Next went to my Internal Doctor who ordered an x-ray that showed degenerative conditions. I had open heart surgery at age 39, pace maker at 66 and several stints with last in 1998. Recent XXXXXXX when diagnosis of pace maker revealed all graphs clean and in good condition. Due to medicine I cannot take anti-inflammatory meds.
Do I have to live with this pain? I'm scheduled to go to physical therapy next week.

Brief Answer:
Can be muscle spasm or renal stone.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

Pain near the renal area can be due to a muscle spasm related to bad posture or a renal stone. This needs an Ultrasound scan to rule out any stone.

Degenerative conditions in spine (which is already diagnosed as you've mentioned) can also cause such a pain. Taking oral muscle relaxants (milder form in your case) and applying local analgesic gels (eg. Diclofenac) and a hot compress will help.

I hope this answers your query.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.

I have been having stabbing pain in my chest for a while. It is only in my heart and it doesn t matter what I am doing, the pain is always there. It does get worse if I bend over or do activity. I am on Voltaren gel and Voltaren meds. I had an EKG done and it was normal. I am scheduled for an ultrasound, chest xray, blood work, and a stress test. I have had this problem since I was a child, but it was never this bad. The pain went away quickly and it was never there all the time. It was just a once in a while kind of thing. What is wrong with me and should I be at the ER right now?

Hi. I had an abortion on Saturday 24 May 2014. It was surgical abortion. I wasnt given any post counselling to inform me of what to expect or anything. I was only given five tablets to take all 5 at once later the evening. I have been having pain ever since the operation, but it wasnt too bad, it did however move through different parts of my body. But since this afternoon my pain has really become excruciating, so much so that I have to crouch my back when I walk. I have been laying in bed since I got home from work today at 5 and havent been able to do much. I took some Voltaren and it helped ease the pain, but when I woke up tonight the pain became even worse. I feel a burning sensation throughout my entire body and it is more intense in my back and my chest and stomache as well. I really dont know if this is normal. Please help
