I have a pain in my left lower back, under the ribs, near where the kidney is. Does anyone know what this could be?

Answer

I am just a lay person, not a doctor or a health professional, Dee. That being said, you need to see your doctor. The symptoms you describe could be from many, many different things, including kidney stones, gastrointestinal issues, or back-related injury. Please see your doctor, and let us know how you are doing. Best Wishes, V
