Is lower backache on the right a symptom of organ dysfunction?

My lower back on the right side has been painful for the past (3) weeks and not getting any better. I m urinating more often but also because I have increased my water intake to more than 64 oz a day. Is the pain any indication of other organ issues? It s not a typical lower back pain that I generally experience.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Increase urination with rt lower atypicapl backache. Would have been more helpful if you could describe pattern of pain and it's severity. If numbness, weakness, weight loss, any cancer history is there consult an orthopedic surgeon. As you said your pain is not typical I am also concerned about you having renal calculi. Going to a urologist/ general surgeon is also important.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My 66 yo husband has been in great pain with his right side and lower back (same side) for 16 hours. He is a very healthy person and is not on any medications. His only surgeries were prostrate and vasectomy. We re wondering if he might have pulled a muscle (?) or if there may be an acute illness happening. He has no other symptoms other than hurting. Than you,

Hi I m 25yrs. Old. I have irregular periods On december i have started taken a slimming coffee also on January ihave started exercising and lose bout 6-7kgfast . Last month my expected period should have started on jan.17,2017but didn t came instead i had brown discharge for two days on the 18th or 19th of January but most of the time i have brown discharge before having or my period is near. But on the 21nd of January i had unprotected sex using the pull out method. On December 2016 i had my period around dec.9-13 from what i remembered. On jan.22 i have taken a antihistamine tab called virlix for 3 day since i had rashes and can t control the itch after 2 days i went to our local dermatologist to have my skin checked then i have very dry skin and gave me antihistamine tabs loratadine have to drink it for 2 times a day for 4 days. I m wondering if the antihistamine has anything to do with my clycle. I have been experiencing cramps on my left ovary mostly and having sharp stinging pain it also happened on my right side from feb1-4 2017 also with lower back pains. I also have tired joints and tender breast on the third day of my cramps but no darkening or nipples and it just slightly hurts the cramps gets more painful everyday. I m wondering if this is a sign of implantation or just PMS don t have any weird food cravings just sweets like chocolate and salty chips the usual when my period is near. Hope to have a fast response.Thanks. Hi ma am

I have been having back pains (mostly around my mid to lower back area) for about 3-4 weeks. It gets worse when I lay down or try to sleep. Recently it has gotten worse ( a 9 out of 10 when it comes to pain). Now my stomach ( intestines ) also ache/hurt. After putting some thought into, it seems I may have had trouble with my stomach from the beginning. It just wasn t predominant . I have gone to urgent care and then followed up with a doctor s visit (when it appeared to just be my back giving me trouble). I was given ibprofen and Flexeril (generic). It does not appear to be working. I am having a horrible time at trying to get some rest and or sleep. The odd part is that during the day, while working my symptoms are bearable at times maybe even unnoticeable (until i eat ). I do not know what to do until I can get in to see the doctor again. Any suggestions on what I can do for relief or what may be causing my pain? I do not believe it is a muscle related injury or don t remember doing anything that may have caused one. Please help! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely in Pain.
