QUESTION:

Can a bladder infection cause side pain?

I have a bladder infection, and just yesterday my right side started sort of hurting a little bit. It's not my appendix, I'm sure, because the pain is in the wrong place. Now, it's not like excruciating pain, just extremely minor annoying pain.

Is side pain normal with a bladder infection?

ANSWER:

yes, especially if it is towards lower back area.

QUESTION:

How to avoid side pain when running?

Do you get side pain when running? Below your stomach?

Why do we get this? And how to prevent it?

ANSWER:

The pain you feel is due to an accumulation of lactic acid. During power-intensive exercises such as sprinting, when the rate of demand for energy is high, lactate is produced faster than the ability of the tissues to remove it and lactate concentration begins to rise.

First and foremost, stay well-hydrated at all times. This includes before, during, and after training sessions as well as throughout day-to-day activities. During the training sessions and directly afterward, try to consume foods that are easily absorbed and digested. This can include sports replacement drinks. In addition, make sure that you eat soon after each training session -- within the first fifteen minutes if at all possible -- to help replenish your depleted glycogen stores. Your post-exercise snack should include a carbohydrate-protein combination.

QUESTION:

Close friend has strong side pains. Is there anything to help eliminate most or all the pain at home?

A close friend of mine, who is a girl, has from what I understand, very bad side pain that has been going on for a long time. She takes birth control pills to help with it and that's about it. Im tired of seeing her in pain and want to help the best I can without having to send her to the doctors. Is there any at home thing that she can do to help with some of this pain?

Side note: She is in her teens and still goes to high-school (I won't give out her exact age since this is on the internet)

I forgot to mention. I believe she said that it had to do something with her ovaries?

ANSWER:

diet and exercise are often quite effective in helping to reduce and manage pain.  however suffering from several chronic pain conditions myself, I understand just how difficult exercise can be at times, especially when it's the core part of your body that hurts.  I completely sympathize with the position she is in.  I was diagnosed with endometriosis back in 2005 after years of pain and discomfort.  I was relieved to finally have a diagnosis until I realized that there's really not a whole lot they can do for me.  I had a surgery that helped for a while, but even the surgery isn't guaranteed to end the symptoms.  Birth control pills just made my symptoms worse.  My advice, find out what the exact name of the condition is and then do some research.  Most medical conditions have online communities where people share with each other things that help them.

QUESTION:

How do you get rid of or prevent side pains?

I dont know if it's a side pain or something else? They happen in my lower abs. I have a six pack and it occurs mainly on one of the bottom two. Im usually the fastest and most durable runner on my basketball team but the past couple of practices hurt. Ill be running and I'll get this pain so bad that I have to slow my running to a walk. It will get better and then it will come back again.

Is there anything I can do to prevent or make them go away? Or is it something more serious than a side pain?

ANSWER:

well... u say u get them when u are running... try not running

QUESTION:

What does it mean to have lower right side pain randomly?

For a few weeks I have been having lower right side pain to the lower right part of my stomach. It does not hurt that bad, but what does it mean?

ANSWER:

kidney problems from diabetes?  Avoid sugar.  get the a1c test.

QUESTION:

How do you prevent/yield side pain when running?

Also, does anyone ever get side pain when they are just walking? 

I am in shape.

ANSWER:

It sounds like you are getting stitches or side cramps.  Stay hydrated, but at the same time don't drink too much just before the run, as either extreme will cause stitches.  Another thing I do is sit ups before the run.  Do one set flat on your back, then do a set on either side.

QUESTION:

Lower back and side pain moved to tailbone?

I've been going to PT for lower back and somewhat of a stabbing pain in my right side. Yesterday I woke up with no lower back pain and minimal side pain but my tailbone is killing me!

Anyone know why the pain migrated, and what this could be?

ANSWER:

Hi Ryan

It sounds like referred pain if there is a problem with your lower back or stabbing pain in your right side. The pain can travel along a nerve and then it appears to be in a differnt place to where the pain originates.

Take a moderate analgesic to relieve the pain, such as co-codomol or paracetamol but stick to the dose on the pack and don't take co-codomol for more than four days without seeing your doctor.

Hope that helps, but the answer sounds like referred pain rather than a problem with your tail bone.

Best wishes

Andy

QUESTION:

How do you get rid of lower back pain for good?

I'm 47. This has been going on for about 5 years.  Left side, pain goes to left thigh also.  I have been to chiro, acupuncture, had shots, mri, x-ray the works.  The pain will still resurface.  Just want to be able to pick up grandchildren and not be sore for weeks.

fyi. I am only an A cup. Don't think I'll get a reduction.

ANSWER:

As a 28 year old young woman with scoliosis I have a lot of experience with back pain. The fact that the pain is radiating down to your thigh makes me think it is related to you sciatic nerve. What I have found the most helpful is yoga and pilates. The controlled movements of yoga not only strengthen your back and abdominal muscles but they also provide flexibility and stretching to the core muscles that have a huge influence on spine health. I am looking for a yoga class right now for this very reason. After physicians keep telling me to simply take ibuprofen/aleve/etc... It can get very frustrating. Especially when none of those drugs can touch the pain! I wish you the best!

QUESTION:

What does it mean when you have side pains?

I have side pains that hurt so much!

ANSWER:

Going off what the person above me said, if it hurts that badly please go to the ER. You could have a cyst, or an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy that is in your fallopian tube, not your uterus, and is fatal) or something else. Going to the ER could save your life. Please, please don't delay!! Good luck and I hope everything is okay.

QUESTION:

What can be causing my lower left abdominal pain?

I am a woman, 24 years. The following are my symptoms:

-crampy pain localized on lower left side

-pain not present when standing

-pain present when sitting, passing bowels, standing up from sitting

-bowel movements fine

-pain is dull, hurts more when I move a certain way

-pain is close to the pelvis

Please help. I have a doc's appointment tomorrow, but I am anxious to know what may be wrong.

ANSWER:

unending possibilities; glad to hear you are seeing a physician tomorrow.  Keep in mind, that when physicians are in school, they must be able to identify at least 10 diagnoses that fit each symptom.  That should give you an idea of why it is good for you to get checked out professionally.

From a nursing point, not as detailed as a physician and not as much education; possible gas, ovary cyst, appendicitis, diverticular pain, constipation, blockage,..... doctors know more

QUESTION:

Can hemorrhoids cause left lower side pain and lower abdominal pain?

No bleeding just anal pains with side pain

ANSWER:

No - hemerrhoids will cause anal pain and bleeding but not abdominal pain.

If you're female - could be ovaries or intestines.

If you're male - could be intestines.

The appendix is on the right side but it's possible to have deferred pain to the left side.  A way to test for appendicitis would be to lay down on your back and have someone tap the bottom of your right foot in the heel area fairly hard (but not jarring) - if this causes pain in your abdomen then it could be appendicitis.

Could also be ovarian cysts, fibroids of the uterus, or a stomach virus or bacterium.

QUESTION:

QUESTION:

what does strong side pains while walking and random nose bleeds mean?

Lately i have had really bad side pains while walking. Also the other day i went in the shower i had a random nose bleed, i didn't even knock it or anything. Then yesterday i was out with my friends and i got another nose bleed. Also last night i woke up at about midnight to find a blood clot (the sort of thing you would get if you blew your nose after a nose bleed) in my hand and a few blood splatters on the wall. I remember coughing heavily before this. Should I be worried?

ANSWER:

Well, nose bleeding is never a good thing. So I recommend you to see a doctor asap.

QUESTION:

Why do i get really bad lower abdominal pain after running?

Its similar to that of menstrual cramps, but worse. after running a mile at school, i would always get these cramps, an i would always be on the ground, curled in a little ball because it would just hurt so bad. It happens when im on my period, and it happens when im not. An i dont understand what this cramping feeling is. An its not a side pain, its an actual cramp in my lower stomach, and i honestly do not know what it is, any ideas?

ANSWER:

Hi, maybe you breathe wrong while running. 

one theory. you should breathe through your mouth and not your nose. Breathing through your nose will tend to create a more irregular pattern as your lungs will not be receiving the air they need.

maybe not.

if still hurts, see your doctor. take care.

QUESTION:

What would cause upper right abdominal pain?

For about 9 months i have had upper right abdomen pain off and on. I have been to several doctors and was tested for appendix and ovarian cysts. Once they found nothing, they said it could be a bad pulled muscle. In the last 2 weeks i have started having severe heartburn along with the side pain. I'm tired of being the lab rat. Could this be something to do with my gallbladder?

ANSWER:

Have you lost weight recently? Have you been on a diet at all? Do you get these pain attacks about an hour after you've eaten food? Or when you lay down in the evening after eating? If this sounds familiar then you may be suffering from problems with your gallbladder. I had to have my gall bladder removed..

QUESTION:

Why do I keep getting side pain when I'm running?

Well I go running sometimes.. but I'm planning to go now a lot but when I run for like 3-5 minutes I start getting side pain and I can't run cause it hurts too much: / I don't drink water before I go and I stretched so What else can I do?

ANSWER:

You are NOT dehydrated! Dehydration does NOT cause hip or side pain (give me a break people). However, you should always drink lots of water and it usually never hurts to drink water right before you run.

Possibilities:

1. You may have some tendonidous in your hip or your IT Band is hurting. Just ice it after you run for fifteen minutes and be sure to stretch really good. Or you could just take a week off from running; keep icing though. Ask an experienced runner or a coach you might know about the problem. They would definitely be able to help you.

2. You are getting nothing more than a cramp. I doubt this is the case because you get it at the same time every time. Just try to keep consistent breathing and don't eat a whole bunch right before you run, although eating never bothered me.

If it hurts around your hips you have an injury. Don't worry it's not that big of a deal, just ice and rest. If if hurts around your stomach area or just below your ribs you're getting a cramp or a side stitch. Just keep running and it will go away.

If you know anybody that is a runner they could easily show you the difference between a cramp, running pains or an injury.

Good luck! Hope you enjoy running!

QUESTION:

Sever lower back pain after a night of laxatives what can I do now?

I was severely constipated, I am chronically constipated and the doctor took an xray last week and I go for a follow up next week.  Anyway yesterday the pain got too bad and I tried several types of laxatives.  About 1: 00 am I finally was relieved of my condition and made several trips the bathroom.

Now I am in severe pain in my lower back just above the buttocks area and the pain is on both sides.  Pain laying down, more pain if I try to get up, pain while sitting up. 

It is a constant strain sharp pain that hurts more when I move and it is only in the lower back area.

Yesterday it was my back and stomach that hurt, now after being relieved it is just the back.

Anyone ever experience this trouble and what worked for you to first get out of pain?

What did you do to prevent from being chronically constipated to get to this point?

I have tried increasing fiber, water, and exercise with little results.

ANSWER:

My daughter has the same problem.  She has tried all sorts of things (fiber, etc.), but to no avail.  She went to an herbalist and they mixed up some herbs for her.  They seem to be the only thing that will help her.  Evidently she has a very sluggish colon, though she had a colostomy and they said she was fine.  Just keep trying by drinking a large glass of water when you first get up and as much as you can through the day.  Fresh fruits and raw veggies, too.  Cut back on the amount of sugar that you consume because I've heard that it can cause constipation, too.  You probably irritated your colon by the laxatives.  Try to eat something soft that won't keep it irritated.  Exercise helps, too. If nothing else, try to walk at least 30 minutes a day.  Otherwise, good luck.

QUESTION:

What are the advantages or benefits of pain and feeling pain?

People view pain as something unpleasant and something to get rid off. In fact, even the human body is designed to stay away from pain and other unpleasant sensations that will be a threat to its existence. Now what I want to know is"the good side of pain". Yes, pain is unpleasant BUT there must be something positive in it.

ANSWER:

Pain lets you know that there is a problem in the body.  Imagine how many things that can be easily treated would escalate to bigger problems if pain didn't alert you to them.

QUESTION:

What is this pain in my upper groin and lower pelvic area?

The other day i was playing in an indoor soccer game. I went to go kick the ball at an awkward angle and tweaked something around the lower pelvic and upper groin area on my left side. The pain will go away when i am not doing anything to harm it, but it will come back say if i lift my leg up or go to lift something. I have put ice on it and have tried sitting in my hot tub for a while but ether of those have helped. I need to find a way to fix this.

ANSWER:

Muscles are the cause of the problem for that twisting caused them to tighten up and now other movements are causing more pressure on them which is causing them to press onto nerves going to those areas.  When the muscles in your lower back get tight they can press onto the nerves leaving the spine that go to your legs which is causing the pains in those places.  To get rid of the pains you have to free up your back muscles to get the pressure off the nerves and here's how to free them up:

Back:

(do while sitting)

Place your left hand on your left leg next to your body.  Place your right hand over your left shoulder, fingers over the back and the palm in the front and firmly pull down on them and hold.  After 30 seconds slowly lower your body forward and to the outside of your left leg, keeping your left arm fairly straight as you do.  When you reach your lap remain there for another 10 seconds, release the pressure but rest there for another 30 seconds.  Then reverse your hand positions and do your right side.

For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.

QUESTION:

What could cause a dull aching pain on sides of lower back?

I have an aching pain on both sides of my lower back, below where the kidneys are but just above my bottom. Could this still be enlarged kidneys or just a muscle pain? Both sides are fairly constant.

ANSWER:

Back pain may be due to many reasons. There is a possibility that the pain could be due to muscle spasticity. This pain can be reduced by allowing your muscles for relaxation by practicing the back exercises.

QUESTION:

back pain that goes away when i apply pressure to my stomach?

I've had this back pain for years now. It has been getting worse over the years and just recently began to be nearly intolerable. When I move it hurts, when I sit it hurts, when I lay down it hurts. Certain random things make it incredibly painful but it always hurts just a little. I recently noticed that if I push on my stomach in the same side the pain is on (right side) the pain goes away but only as long as I apply pressure.

ANSWER:

You need to see a doctor asap that may be your appendix.

97% of people are vitamin D deficient - you may be also.  I suggest you have your vitD levels tested.

83% of people with low back pain were vitamin D deficient

95% of people with chronic pain had the pain go away with vitamin D

Symptoms of acute vitD deficiency can include -

Weakness, Sadness, Listlessness, Tiredness, Muscle-Pain,

Cramps, Cramps at Night,

Circulation problems,

Twitching, (Eyelid, Arm, or Legs)

fingernails have small white spots,

Dizzyness, Dizziness that disappears when lie down

Headache, Headache - Standing up, Headache - Sport, Headache - disappears, when laying down

Standing causes backpain,  hip-pain,  groin-pain, and/or leg-pain. Standing for a long time causes pain in legs

Vitamin D3 deficiency has become an epidemic, probably because people are washing daily.  If you wash skin exposed to the sun within 48 hours, you wash off the oils where the vitamin D production starts.  In northern latitudes (above that of Atlanta, Georgia) the sun is at too low an angle for half the year to provide sufficient UV radiation. If even available, UVB rays are only accessible while the sun is directly overhead.  Most people need to take vitamin D, especially seniors, as the ability to synthesize vitamin D in the skin declines with age.

With exposure to sunlight in the summer, the body can generate up to 20, 000iu of vitamin D per hour with no ill effects. In addition, no adverse effects have been seen with supplemental vitamin D intakes up to 10, 000 IU daily.

Vitamin D3 is not a vitamin at all but a necessary hormone that effects the immune system, bones & nearly every aspect of health.  Having low Vitamin D levels greatly increases risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, MS & being deficient can create or greatly exacerbate health problems.  Many researchers claim that optimized vitamin D levels are more effective than a flu shot in preventing viral infections.

Always take your vitamin D with a fat-containing meal to ensure absorption.

The prescription vitamin D supplements are the wrong type (ergocalciferol - vitamin D2).  As warned by the National Institute of Health -

Luckily you can buy vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) over the counter and the upper limits are extremely high. U. S. RDA are much too low. Current recommendations from researchers are for 35iu per pound - a 150# person needs minimum of 5250iu per day (which is for minimal needs and does not replenish depleted stores) & the rda is 400iu. 

Research published by Grassroots Health from the D*Action study shows that 97. 5% of the adult population needs to take 9, 600 IU's of vitamin D per day in order to elevate their levels above 40ng/ml, which they believe is the absolute minimum for disease prevention.  Need 14, 100 IU/d to get 97. 5% of the population above 50 ng/ml Universal intake of up to 40, 000 IU vitamin D per day is unlikely to result in vitamin D toxicity.

I also highly recommend a low carb way of eating for optimal health.

Your vitamin D level should never be below 32 ng/ml, and any levels below 20 ng/ml are considered serious deficiency states, increasing your risk of as many as 16 different cancers and autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, just to name a few.

They found that the body does not reliably begin storing cholecalciferol in fat and muscle tissue until 25(OH)D levels get above 50 ng/ml (125 nmol/L). That is, at levels below 50 ng/ml (125 nmol/L), the body uses up vitamin D as fast as you can make it, or take it, indicating chronic substrate starvation not a good thing. 25(OH)D levels should be between 50 80 ng/ml (125 200 nmol/L), year-round.

QUESTION:

What could cause pain between my spine and shoulder-blade when I inhale?

I recently blew my noise and then inhaled deeply, at which time I felt a sharp pain in my back between my spine and shoulder blade on the right side. This pain has continued often as I inhale.

ANSWER:

Obviously any sharp or deep pain should be investigated further by your health practitioner to rule out any organic problems. This sort of presentation is common with a dislocated or"popped"rib, and in an older more fragile person possibly a rib fracture. These can be painful and difficult to diagnose sometimes even on xray. This can occur from some sort of strenuous or repetitious activity ie shoveling or lifting or from an impact injury, straining (a sneeze) or like in contact sports. If you have visited your health practitioner and they have ruled out the more serious possibilities, I would suggest seeing either your Chiropractor, physio or massage therapist to address any structural problems that may be there. If it persists they should have an xray done at a minimum. Healing time could depend on a persons specific history and general condition.

QUESTION:

What are ways to relieve cramps/side pains?

im not for certain whats causeing them. im not on my period and its not time for my period and iv already had it earlier this month. and even when i do have my period i dont get cramps/side pains. i only get them if i have been running for a long distance which i have not been doing that no more because i graduated so i no longer run for cross country or track. there is a huge posibility that im pregnant but i cant know yet. but im thinking that the cramps/side pains could have something to do with it. but how can i relieve them or keep them from coming. i have been getting them more when i change positions when laying down or when i turn when im sitting down. is this normal and if so when will it go away. im really unconfertable so i would really appreaciate some advice on this. i already tried asking this in the womens health but there has been no answers.

all my friends lately think that im pregnant and so do i for ovious reasons that you dont know. but can i take a few pain pills or something just so i can try to get some sleep

i have to wait till like at least the 7th or latter i think before i can take a home pregnancy test

what is codein and what medincine has it in it. i only got this off brand extra strength pain reliever and its main ingredent is acetaminophen whatever that is. and it says if pregnant ask a health profeshional before use. but i cant do that right now.

a friends mom who thinks im pregnant for shore also thinks that
