What causes persistent right-sided back pain?

default
Posted on Thu, 5 May 2016
Question: I have had right side back pain for the last few days reverberating to the right side of my stomach but on the side of the back. It's a dull pain at the moment but constant.
I do not have trouble urinating and have had my appendix removed. Could this be a pulled muscle or Kidney/gall bladder stones or something else

Hello,
I have studied your case. Pain on back side on right side can be due to kidney stone or gall bladder stone. But before I can diagnose this I would like to know little detail of the illness.

3. Do you have pain on rest or only with activities
