Customer Question
I'm having lower right...

I'm having lower right back/side pain

Doctor's Assistant: When did the pain begin? Have you used any medication for it?

It started about 8 hours ago out of nowhere. No I have not taken anything as of yet

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a pediatrician about the pain?

No.

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

It started this evening while I was working as a massage therapist. I have asthma and did just have a splenic artery embolization last Monday.

34/f. History of kidney stones but no symptoms currently. Nothing I did caused it, just started. I can't take a deep breath and it hurts to cough. Sae was due to esophageal and gastric varices found accompanying portal vein hypertension
Doctor: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago

HI...from your symptom analysis and keeping your history in mind (renal stones), I put forth these possibilities -

1. Muscular spasm - as the movement and deep breath is aggravating it. I suggest 2 - 3 doses of Ibuprofen 400mg with a gap of 8 hours will suffice.

2. It could be a renal colic and this should be needing a medical attention as the area of pain is suggestive of this and moreover after I asked - you came out with a positive history.

But I suggest you go ahead with Ibuprofen and wait for 24 hours with this. Meanwhile you take 2-3 liters of water per day.

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.
