I have right flank pain when I get up I the morning and when

Customer Question

HI I have right flank pain when I get up I the morning and when bending over. No pain when at rest. During the day it goes. I did bust a couple of ribs on that side last year.
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: It started in July while bending over after a shower. A sharp pain and then it went. Bending seems to trigger it and it feels like a hand s pressing my flank then it goes.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No.

I am sorry you are having this flank pain

you could be pinching on nerve on your ribs when you bend over.

or you could be pinching on nerves in your lower back when you bend over as well which can cause right flank pain.

how old are you?

how did you fracture your ribs on that side last year?
