You should probably see a physician or Nurse Practitioner for a full assessment.

Pain on the right side radiating into the back can be gall bladder (this is probably the most likely cause in an otherwise healthy individual).

Is there any rash associated with it??, as that pain can also be shingles which needs to be treated asap.

It really needs to be assessed and it is difficult to do that by internet.

hurts towards the upper part of my back..
no rash, just pain.

Can you see a nurse practitioner here with no referal??

If it's just your side and back it could be that you popped a rib out of place. It's happened to me before and hurts like a son of a gun!! I had to see a chiropractor to get it put back. Now when it happens it hurts really bad but eventually subsides slowly and then it's gone.

I would definitely check with a doctor if it keeps up though, it could be something more serious.

I had some pain in my right side of my abdomen when I was younger.. I hated hospitals too... turns out it was my Apendix. I ignored it till it was so much pain... turns out it exploded in my stomach and I almost died.... go see a doctor or NP ASAP!

Is there a nurse practitioner here that you can just call and make an appointment?

No, unfortunately, I don't think there are any nurse practitioners in town who are taking new patients, but there is an NP who works in the Emergency Dept. at the hospital.

Sudbury just opened an NP clinic, sure would be nice to get one of those here. We have several unemployed NPs in this town, such a waste not to be utilizing their skills.

I agree it could be that too. When you pull a rib out of place, the pain radiates everywhere and is extremely painful.

Hope you feel better Babzz!

Hmmm... if it happens again I would go to a chiropractor and see what they say. You can usually get in right away. That would rule out a few things and if it's not anything they can find, header to emerg.

Glad to hear you're feeling better! /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif
