For a long while now I occasionaly get these horrendous pains in my lower back, they're usually on my right side and always in the rough area of my kidneys. They come on fairly slowy and build up and up to the point where they hurt so much they take my breath away, found very little that helps whilst this is happening, when they stop the just stop dead (like they've been switched off), the last one hurt so much I ended up in tears (which for a 17 stone HGV driver is not normal)
Has anyone else had similar pains ?? Would be good to know what the hell it is, I'm not currently seeing a consultant as the one I was under left and her replacement hardly spoke a word of english.
