What is the cause of back pain?

Kidney infection?
I have been having severe back pain right under the ribs and above the waste. it has been hurting since Thanksgiving. I did drink a lot of pop lately but have been trying to drink water more. I think it has something to do with my kidneys.

Urologist 's  Response
Hello
Thanks for query .
Severe back pain and pain above waist is mostly due to presence of stone either in kidney or ureter .
Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical and digital rectal examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1) Urine routine and culture.
2) Ultrasound scanning of abdomen and pelvis

In the mean while take broad spectrum antibiotic like Cefixime along with anti spasmodic like Cyclopam twice daily .

Further treatment will depend upon result of these tests ,site and size of stone (If detected )and final diagnosis.
