Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Is it tender to touch?
Do you have pain or burning when passing urine?
Please let me know
Yes when the pain is there it's quite tender. And when it's at it worst the lower back is sore when passing urine.
Have you used anything for it?
I mean medications?
Did you have a urine test?
I also do feel quite lethargic when I have it.
No medication or anything. Yes urine test has been clear also.
How many times do you go to pass urine?
Ah 10 / 12 times a day.
and how many times at night waking you up from sleep?
Am some nights never and some nights once.
Have you tried taking any pain medications?
Since how long are you having this?
Not really no.
Ah jesus maybe 3 years on and off.
Off and on means how often? Or after how many days?
The back pain does be very bad at times.
It comes and goes like. Maybe once a week or that and could last week or a day. It varies a lot.
I personally think that you should have a CT scan of your abdomen.
Ultrasounds quite often miss kidney stones.
I personally think that you have a kidney stone that the ultrasound has missed.
Therefore I think that you should request a CT scan.
Is that harmful or dangerous to me ? and would the alcohol make the pain worse and use intercourse.
Its very painful thats for sure.
Would it have anything to do with the prostate or anything ?
If it were harmful it would have caused you at least some problems over the past one year.
Prostate is UNLIKELY because of the location of the pain and tenderness.
Another possibility is that of a muscular pain but the thing thats going against it is that you are having it for a long period of time.
It can be painful alright. At times unbearable that I have to sit down !!!
But a CT scan I think is necessary.
What sort of problems ?
Should I make an appointment with a urologist do you think ?
I think a urologist would be good
A CT scan would at least rule out stones definitively which ultrasound does not.
Thanks for your help today doctor. I'm also currently suffering anxiety but I know this isn't anxiety pain either.
