Kidney or Back Pain?
How to determine if its Kidney or Back Problem
Since there are so many causes of back ache it is difficult to determine what type you are up against. There are several ways to tell what you are suffering from.
First Way - Direct trauma to back
The simplest method is try and determine if there has been a direct trauma to your back. This trauma can include a fall, car accident or hit. If there has been trauma than it is likely that you are suffering from back ache and not kidney pain.
Second Way - Nagging Ache vs Acute
If the pain you are feeling is acute and when you move around the pain can either increase or decrease in intensity than it is likely that the pain you are feeling is due to back pain. Kidney pain tends to be a nagging pain which does not go away and there is nothing you seem to be able to do to make it better or worse. Where as back ache if you ice it or apply heat the intensity of the soreness can vary. This second way to determine if you have kidney or back pain is the easiest way of quickly determining what you are experiencing.
