Kidney pain is a constant dull pain or ache in your back that often gets felt the most on the sides of the back or in some cases close to the bellybutton. Some people even feel this pain downward to their groin area in some cases. There are certain signs that could point to kidney related issues you should look out for alongside this kidney pain;

1. A constant dull ache in the back that doesn't go away even after taking pain relief medications.

2. Pain in your sides under the ribcage or in the lower abdomen.

3. Severe pain that comes in waves meaning the pain comes and go with each episode being very painful.

4. Pain that spreads to the groin area

5. Kidney pain is often accompanied by nausea or vomiting especially if the pain is due to stones forming in the kidneys. So you need to watch out for these symptoms and if you notice them alongside the unending back pain, rush to a doctor for proper examination.
