Swelling Pain below left breast - Is it a symptom of kidney problems?
I'm getting worried. 2 weeks ago, after quite alot of alcoholic drinks (approx 2 glasses of wine, and 6-8 shots of tequila), I developed a swelling pain right below my left breast. I brushed it of as a muscle twist/sprain since that night I didn't sleep in a comfy position and felt the pain just as I tried to change my sleeping position. The pain subside after 2-3days. Few days later, after another night of drinking (approx 1 vodka, 2 beers, and 6-8 single vodka on ice), and right next day another 4-5 single vodka shots, I felt this same uncomfortable swelling pain at the same spot. I do drink alot of water daily, and each morning after heavy drinking, I always have 500ml of isotonic drink at least. I do pee alot after and felt that the toxins get flushed out coz my pee is clear.
The pain this time round persist, and hurts when I cough, when I move, when I breathe.
Also, I have been on a diet-pill prescribed by the doc which has diuretic effects. (which is also why I drink tonnes of water) Makes me pee almost right after each glass of water and interval between each visit can be as short as 10min. Sometimes I have to hold back peeing as I could be on the road driving.
Plus, I'm a bar owner for the past 6 mths, and have been drinking practically every other night, mostly whiskies/beer/wine.
Is this possibly a kidney failure? I have no other pains nor symptoms besides that! Will drinking more water help to flush my kidney and relief this pain or is this something acutely alarming that I should get it checked?
