I have a constant pain, not sharp, at my right side hip

This answer was rated:

I have a constant pain, not sharp, at my right side hip below my ribs. It only started this morning but has not eased at all. I'm concerned it's a kidney problem. I also felt queasy this morning but was not sick.

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Any urinary or bowel complaints?

Does the pain radiate anywhere ?

Any known medical problem or medicines you are taking?

I am taking preventative pills, Atenolol 25mg, Bendroflumethiazide 2.5mg & Amias 4mg.

Thanks for the information

It does seems like a kidney pain, The location below the rib cage most likely suggest a kidney pain although kidney pain are felt most commonly in posterior abdomen as compared to anterior . At time if there is a kidney stone and it pass from kidney downwards a pin in anterior abdomen can be felt and actually is very severe. As you have taken paracetamol without much relief I would suggest you to see the doctor for an evaluation and further medicines as required to control your pain. You might need some tests like an ultrasound/CT Scan and blood work to establish the exact cause of this pain.

Good luck
