  • C6 - C7 Lower Back/Side Pressure

    I'm a C6-C7 and have recently been feeling pressure on my right side/lower back below my ribcage. It's not painful, just annoying since I haven't felt anything back there in the past 7 years. It sort of feels like if you sat back and leaned up against a tennis ball. Went to the Dr. and he claimed UTI and put me on an antibiotic, that was a week ago and I still feel it. I don't doubt I had a UTI, I've had plenty, but never had this feeling along with it.

    Has anyone had the same situation or any suggestions as to what it may be?

    Have you had recent tests for stones or hydronephrosis?? Both can cause flank pain like this from your kidney. They could also cause you to have a UTI. Suggest you see a good urologist and have some more tests done.
