Question: Pain on the other side now


 hockeycatgirl - Tue Sep 06, 2005 5:24 pm

Last month I went to the ER with verydeep left flank pain. I was given a CT-normal. Bloodwork normal,urine normal. The dr figures it was a renal spasm-sent me home with Lortabs-pain went away in just over 24 hours. Today I had a nasty pain-just one-in the right flank. I was just seen this morning by my dr for a checkup-i've been dealing with depression/anxiety. He even tapped that area-nothing hurt or anything. Should I just watch this??? I've had any number of ct scans-had my gall bladder removed last December. I've also had an upper and lower GI-normal. Ive turned 40-am I just getting old???? Could use some advise.

i couldnt sleep last night due to a very sharp pain that started on the left side of my body, around the back lower part of my ribs and to the side. i have no idea what this could be. the pain gets real sharp sometimes and at times its really light. but its been there for almost 12 hours. it hurts when i move, when i breathe in, when i burp. i don't want to go to the emergency room if its not necessary (i hate hospitals). but i don't know, should i be worried?
