For the last few weeks I have had pretty severe pain on both my sides. It is right above my hip bone, under my ribs. No real fever, other than what I normally have. The pain was gradual at first and fleeting, but now it is pretty constant and much worse. When it started it was toward the front, but now it is more on my back, but it moves around during the day, which makes me think that it is maybe intestinal. But both sides is a bit weird. So that made me think kidney, I did go have a urinalysis yesterday just to rule out an infection, negative. Of course, the doctor didn't want to see me, just sent me to the lab. It is so bad that I can't sleep on my sides. And to top it all off, this is the week that my GP leaves to become a concierge doctor, so after 21 years with him I have to start over and try to explain my lovely complicated self to someone new. I just don't even know whether to call my GI, GYN, or new GP. So, anyone with a history of this type of pain, or any ideas?
