Back pain, nausea. Blood work and EKG normal. Should I wait?

I am 37 years old, female , and have had a dull ache in the upper left side of my back for about 5 days. At times it makes me feel slightly nausea . I have had blood work and an EKG in the last month due to a fainting episode and they both came back fine. I am not sure if I should head back to my doctor or wait it out a few more days.

Thanks for posting your query.
Do you have difficulty in breathing/ cough/ chest pain?
Do you have pain aggravation after eating meals?
Do you have acidic belching/ abdominal heaviness?
You pain location suggest some kind of chest pathology while association with vomiting suggests gastric problem.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist and should go for thorough check up.
You should go for chest x ray, endoscopy, serum amylase along with liver function test.
You should take proton pump inhibitors along with prokinetics for improvement of symptoms.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Hello there,

Thanks for writing in.

The possibilities I can think of in your case are gastritis, acidity, trapped gas in the bowel, urinary tract infection. Has pregnancy been ruled out as a possibility?

Any history of fever, vomiting, increased frequency of urination, burning urination etc.... If yes, more in favour of urinary tract infection.

I would advise you to visit your physician.......

I hope I have answered your queries .I will be happy to answer any further queries you might have.

Have a great day.
