Hi I am 32 year indian male with 160 cm , 60 kg , having left flank pain for last 3- 4 weeks some times radiating left gluteal area but mostly sticks to below rib cage to hip.paracetamol helps to relieve pain but its there and comes back when I stop taking them or do some physical exertion. Thought of UTI and had a course of ciprofloxacin 500 mg bd for 5 days but still persists ....during the course of antibiotics one time urine dip showed only protein + . No other changes and healthy .also borderline hypercholestrolaemia .LFT problems of constipation or poor appetite. Pain more of a dull kind or rather burning... Is it muscular or something else actually gives some relief...I had a sprain in the area 4- 5 months back in the same area while doing exercise ...

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have pain in left flank since 4 weeks.and have taken antibiotics .

The pain is persistent in spite of taking medicines.

Your routine Urine test result revealed proteinuria.

Looking at the nature and site of the pain it will be advisable to get ultrasound scanning of the abdomen to rule out presence of Stone in the Kidney or Ureter.

Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical assessment and further treatment.
