I've been having Pain in my kidney on the left side After i eat or drink anything. It just started two days ago. The pain will go away after 5 min. or so after i eat or drink. But it's almost after a few bites of something it acts up it hurts the most after i drink water, juice etc. Any insight on what it could be and how to prevent it would be appricated.

User avatar Hello jones,

You were probably right to post your question in this forum.
Sometimes disorders of the gut can mimick kidney pain. Conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome are common enough and can lead to symptoms that may be associated with stress and bowel disturbances.

Either way you should be physically checked for this.
