When the kidneys are unhealthy, you may experience pain or discomfort in various parts of your body. However, it's important to note that kidney-related pain is often felt in the back or flank area, below the rib cage on either side of the spine. Here are some areas where you might notice pain or discomfort when the kidneys are unhealthy:
1. Back: According to Healthline, Kidney pain is commonly felt in the back, specifically in the area between the ribs and hips. It can be dull, throbbing, or sharp.
2. Flanks: The flanks are the sides of the body between the ribs and hips. Kidney pain often radiates to these areas, and you may feel tenderness or soreness.
3. Abdomen: Some people with kidney problems may experience abdominal pain, usually in the lower part of the abdomen.
4. Groin: In certain cases, kidney pain can radiate to the groin area, causing discomfort or aching sensations.
5. Pelvis: Kidney-related pain may extend to the pelvic region, causing aches or discomfort.
It's important to remember that not all kidney problems necessarily result in pain. Some kidney conditions, such as chronic kidney disease, may initially be asymptomatic or present with other non-painful symptoms, such as changes in urination patterns, swelling, fatigue, or nausea. If you're experiencing any concerning symptoms or suspect kidney-related issues, it's advisable to consult a healthcare professional for a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
