Kersh and I have had Flank pain on my right side since

Customer Question
Kersh and I have...

Kersh and I have had Flank pain on my right side since Friday. It only feels sore and when I walk I feel sore or press on it. I went to the ER Saturday night. They did blood work and all looked fine and sent me on my way.

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

I feel fine other than the soreness and it is constant. I am only 20 and I work for my uncle on Fridays and do some heavy lifting. A few weeks ago I had some burning when I urinate and went to the doctor. They did some STD testing and checked me for a UTI but all was fine. I do not feel the burning anymore and I do drink lots of water.

Hi

You cannot rule out a stone without a scan, but usually pain is severe.

A back problem can also cause pain here, a problem with the spine, disc, or ligament.

The ER is not a great place for an evaluation.

You should have a complete exam by an internist , and if indicated, a physical medicine doctor.

Or urologist.

Depending on findings.

OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
