    Do you drink a lot of coffee?

    I had very bad 'cramp' pains and I cut the coffee out, no pains now. Only a suggestion that worked for me. Maybe it is some other sort of dietary problem.

    *Ok first up, Co-codamol is useless for back pain. What you need is something with Ibuprofen (anti-inflammatory) in it. If you're talking about over the counter medicine (rather than doctor prescribed) can I suggest going to boots and asking for a box of Nurofen Plus. Make sure you read the label. :thumbsup:

    maybe a kidney/water infection?? they are very painfull


    maybe a kidney/water infection?? they are very painfull

    Yep, sounds about like it could be that, but suggest you try the NHS direct web site to check out your symptoms:thumbsup:

    Constiptaion ,IBS,renal colic ,UTI, pancreatitis, muscular back pain, gastritis to name a few differential diagnoses.

    Really depends on a more detailed history, examination and some urine tests.

    Phone NHS 24/Direct for advice and see your GP next week.

    Don't rely on information from a hot deal website!! ;-)

    Maybe you're in labour.......:)

    It sounds like you're doctor suspects it is muscular back pain. You probably think its odd that you get adomen pains but there may be pressure on a nerve. As the poster above suggests follow the advice of the doctor for now but there is no harm in using some of the health websites to become a more "informed" patient.

    The health encyclopedia on NHS DIrect website is good [url][/url]

    There is [url][/url] by the BMJ (also excellent but only covers some conditions)

    Then there is [url][/url] - although geared to health professionals there is a section of patient information leaflets. This covers many of the conditions a GP typically sees....
