drink even when you don't feel like it to stay hydrated, the only time my kidneys hurt is when i don't drink enough fluids. i know hip pain well, i'll getting a replacement very soon, kidney pain is the kinda pain you get in your side when walking a good distance. feels like a muscle in the lower back but it really the kidney aching. fluids end the pain quickly
From your description, it sounds like you need more back support. I've suffered kidney stones for over 30 years, and the pain (from kidneys) is more in the side; from lower back around the side and into the lower front. If you're not experiencing pains in the side, I'd say that back support would help you. Good luck.
its in the back i try to look out for bumps, so i'm always tensed up. just seen a antiques roadshow and they were talking about old timers and kidney belts.Thanks for the info. i have bifocals kneepads ,highway bars maybe i should getr a back belt
A back belt would be a cheap mod to see if it works to ease the pain. Cheaper than buying a new seat and other mods. At 72 I know the aches and pains of getting older, but as long as I can I'll continue to ride.
i'm 61, the last couple years i've officially entered into old age.it sucks.as long as its not my kidneys i'll get used to it.a back belt would be uncomfortable but would take some of the weight off, you got to do what you got to do.
I hear ya. I'll be 61 this year and know what yer talkin about. Got me a back brace to try out this year. But ya know, I get the same pain even from riding long time in a car. Especially our VW Bug. Seats leave much to be desired. Guess just can't sit for too long.
Some of y'all were creative with your username. I'm not that resourceful, lesblank is an abridged version of my actual name. My full name has 26 letters, my signature is a joke, short like me. How did you come up with your username? Some I can figure out, others I have no clue. Is it a nick...
