Question: Pain in right side

 Travelman - Tue Dec 20, 2005 3:01 am

Last week I went to the doctor because I had
pain in my testicles and feeling like I
needed to urinate but I didnt and he came to
the the conclusion I had constipation so he
gave me some laxative i think it is for it
now I have lower back pain sometimes ,and
pain on my lower right side sometimes and small stools sometimes, I don't have the
testicle pain now or feeling like I need to
urinate. I am 25. Thanks for your help

User avatar Dear Travelman,

According to your description, a urinary tract problem more than a GI problem is more likely to be the cause.
Pains due to renal problems are dull aching or colicky pains, felt in the abdomen, back and radiates down to the groin and, commonly associated with other urinary symptoms, like burning micturition or urine frequency.

The condition may be due to urinary tact infection or ureteric stones.

Constipation and other causes of pelvic congestion may give similar picture.

I advise you to do a urine analysis, and abdominal US.
Follow up with your Doctor, only by complete history and physical examination, he can recommend the proper medical approach.
Best regards,
