Pain has been around for 4 or 5 years, but has been worst in the last month. It hurts more when I twist to the right when sitting. I can take a ibuprofen and it relieves almost all the pain for about 8 hours. No nausea or vomiting, stools are soft, and I urinate about once every 3 hours. When I went to the Dr. and told him where it was he pressed in one spot and I yelled. It is about 4 inches to the right of my backbone and about 2 inches above the belt.
