Back Pain and Night Sweats

I've been experiencing persistent pain in my back on the right side (around the waist area). It's a chronic ache, but on two occassions, I did get a sharp pain - like someone was stabbing me in the area with an ice pick- bad enough to wake me up from sleep. In addition, I've been sweating at night, despite having the A/C and a fan going. The night sweats have varied - sometimes not that bad and other times bad enough to the point where the sheets have gotten wet.

Could this be just simple back pain? I'm worried that it might be my kidney.

Thanx for any quidance / feedback.

Re: Back Pain and Night Sweats

[COLOR="Navy"]Are you of the age for menopause? That could be the explanation for the night sweats.

Have you had any issues with your kidney? Have you had infections? Problems peeing?

Do you have the back pain all the time, or just when you go to bed? If it's constant, my personal guess would be that it's just a back issue.[/COLOR]
