Flank Pain

Has anyone ever experienced right side flank pain, thats a dull achey pain? Sometimes on the left side as well. Could it be MS hug?

Re: Flank Pain

Above the waist- I call that a hug. If the pain is in the gluteus or quad region, I call that nerve pain. Mine has most often been on my left side, though my hugs are usually on both sides.

Re: Flank Pain

Perhaps you should be sure that the flank pain isn't related to any kidney troubles. Also, you can experience flank pain when you are dehydrated. Just a thought...

Re: Flank Pain

Hi Primate---------------

I have an old back injury (s1) that is exasperated now due to the MS and my left hip/leg/flank throb and ache more than they used to(pretty much constantly).The "hug" usually hits much higher (navel up)and is much more intense---If I didn't know better I would swear I was having a heart attack as MS is a bear and hugs like one.

Jayhawk,do you find that your hugs are usually preceded by "twitches" in your legs.On bad days my calf muscles will twitch and carry on with a bought of hugs following later in the day---kind of a heads up on what is to come I guess.

much love-------------knuckle
