That would stomach. My symptoms is more kidney area
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I just drink sorrel with run inside of it and my right side and upper back burns. Only to the right
Urologist: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Urologist replied 7 months ago

Kidney and stomach are in the same area.

Kidney diseases usually give urinary symptoms with pain.

Any drinks causing symptoms are more likely to be related to stomach.
