It's not spinal stenosis - stenosis does not cause that type of pain, though it can lead to other problems that can cause it. In addition to stenosis, disk problems for over 2…0 years, 3 major spinal operations, I also have a specific hereditary problem that led to my condition and degeneration. I've been in formal Pain Mgt for over 10 years, requiring the strongest opiates. I have had disk herniations and pain occur and reoccur many times over the years. Certain disks press on certain nerves that can be traced by the pain, determining the origin of the nerve being compressed. You have 1 or 2 potential problems, depending on how far up the pain is on your back, or if you've had a specific injury recently or you play contact sports. If the pain is sharp and you can follow it with your finger, what you likely have is a herniated disk at the L3/L4 disk or L4/L5 disk, most likely the L3/L4. The other is there's an offchance you might have more than one. The best way to determine which disk is by tracing the rout of the nerve pain. If it's down the back of the leg it's in the lower vertebrae, L5-S1. L3 and L4 pain will radiate from the middle of the back, down to the waist, across the hip of one side, across the side of the leg, across the thigh and finally stopping at the inside knee, depending on the severity of the problem. If the upper pain is in the shoulder area it's likely unrelated. If it's within a foot of the waistline just above the buttocks, offcenter of the spine itself, then it's likely related to the disk causing the leg pain as the pain normally traces the nerve path. In any event, you need to get to you doctor ASAP, and cease any lifting over a few pounds. You also need to start reducing the inflammation to get the disk to retract into the membrane. My 2 favorite non prescription meds are Bayer Back and Body Aspirin, and Tylenol Rapid Release geltabs. Start tracking your pain as well - severity on a 1-10 scale (10 being unbearable), the location (draw a simple body picture and note the location), the time of day it occurs or if it's constant, what you're doing if it gets worse, anything. It will help you later on when you see a doctor. You can also get those forms (Pain diaries) at Http://www.painfoundation.org.

\nMuscle spasms, gallbladder problems, colon problems, to mention three things...
Sciatic pain can be identified by its definite pattern, usually starting in your buttocks, but can also start from the lower back. A feeling of pain and tenderness is then ext…ended down the back of your thigh and into the lower part of your leg, sometimes the pain even reaches the soles of your feet. This is a gnawing pain that tends to spasm. The clinical diagnosis and medical term used for sciatica is radiculopathy. It means that a disc has protruded from its normal position in the vertebral column and is putting pressure on the radicular nerve, situated in the lower back. Radiculopathy or sciatica is broadly used to describe a form of pain that radiates into your leg. Pain running down the back of your leg is symptomatic to sciatica, but pain running in the front of your leg, or general lower back and leg pain is technically not true symptoms of sciatica.
it could be a number of things such as, kidney infection or kidney stones, appendicitis, muscle sprain, back/spinal problems,........
gas bubble, or liver
On the upper right side of your abdomen is your liver and gall bladder (both are just tucked under your ribcage). If it's a type of pain which only hurts when you move, it …probably is just a pulled muscle. If it's a "stabbing" pain which lingers regardless of whether you're moving, or if the pain moves or spreads to your upper left abdomen, see a doctor. Likewise, if you're feeling "unwell" (e.g 'fluey, temperature, nausea or vomiting etc...). If this is the case, and you're middle age, have a relatively unhealthy diet (and particularly if you're female), it's probably gall-bladder related pain. This is easily treatable, but is easiest treated when it's caught early, so please don't just "wait and see".
Abdominal pain can unfortunately be the cause of several problems. It is best to see your doctor, especially if symptoms persist. A few common causes of pain to the right uppe…r abdomen include:. Gastroenteritis . Gallstones . Pancreatitis . Perforated Gastric Ulcer . Hepatitis . These are just a few of the many possible causes of pain to that area of the abdomen. Again visiting your physician will be the only way to differentiate between the many causes.
There is no way of diagnosing that over the internet. Please see your doctor if you are worried.
Holding way to many books in school.
could be any number of things.
The area you indicate is the site of the liver. Tuck the fingers of the left hand under the ribs in that area. If that makes you jump, it's a liver problem. Either way, a visi…t to your GP is in order.
Repost and tell us the 'right side' of what. Head, knee, eye, foot, etc.
Many things, bites, scratches, cuts, sores, infections, parasites, internal hemmorhaging, a problem with your right lung or a muscle.
