Im having dull pain...

Im having dull pain off and on in both sides of my mid back right where my rib cage starts and sometime pain goes down to my growing area. Sex drive or desire has decreased a lot.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Drinking ALOT OF WATER sometimes. But it comes back. Im a wine drinker but i had to cut back because my bowl movements was very dark like..... black.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No....thats it

Male
For months off and on maybe a year

Hi...the possibilities are -

1. Muscular pain or spasm. For this you have already tried OTC Ibuprofen, the next step is muscle relaxants and physiotherapy.

2. Renal stones or renal colic - you will need an ultrasound for this. But unlikely as you drink lots of water.

3. Prostratic hypertrophy - you will need an ultrasound for this. But unlikely as your age is not fitting in.

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.
