Customer Question
I have a dull...

I have a dull constant pain in my back waist area up to my ribs. Some times it is so intense it takes my breath away.

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Looking at my back, if your hands were on my waist, to my ribs is a dull pressure pain that feels like something is a warm hard pressure inside. Doesn't feel muscular. It is worse at night, and now it is constant throughout the day, and worse at night

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

The location raises the suspicion for obstructing kidney stone.

Hence you need kidney ultrasound to rule that out.
Best wishes,

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
