47 Female. History includes a kidney stone 12 years ago. I currently have no pain w urination like I remember when I had kidney stone. My current pain is very specific to one area on lower back that feels like a bruise however I don't remember doing anything that would cause this discomfort
Health Professional: Onlinedoc, General Physician replied 8 months ago

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, possibly it's muscle strain.

And you should take OTC Advil.

Also do gentle massage with topical diclofenac sodium ointment on affected site and apply cool compresses with ice pack.

You should maintain a good hydration.

Also take OTC Pepcid and citrucel.

If pain is getting severe then visit emergency room to rule out other possible differential diagnosis like Kidney stone,Herniated disc.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

I don't think its a muscle strain. Going to bed will see how I feel in morning and will reaccess. Thank you
Health Professional: Onlinedoc, General Physician replied 8 months ago

Other possible differential diagnosis may include Ovarian cyst.

You should take OTC Advil and other self care remedies for pain relief.

I hope this answers your question. If you would like to discuss this further or have any additional questions, please reply to my answer and I will get right back to you.

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.

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!!
