Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Are you experiencing right sided lower back pain?

Thank you for reaching out to our community with this question. I can provide you with general information. But, if you are having pain, please contact your primary care physician, who knows you and your medical history.

Flank pain refers to discomfort in your upper abdomen or back and sides. It develops in the area below the ribs and above the pelvis. Usually, the pain is worse on one side of your body.

Constant or severe flank pain may indicate a serious medical condition, such as dehydration or a urinary tract infection. Kidney stones or another kidney problem may also cause persistent flank pain.

Shingles, arthritis, especially spinal arthritis, a pinched nerve in your back, disc disease and a muscle spasm are common causes of flank pain.

Appendicitis, pancreatitis, Crohn's disease, and a blockage in the urinary tract are less common causes.

Hope this answers your question.
