This means the onset of back pain is an alarm of several complications for these patients. Then, how to relieve back pain in Polycystic Kidney Disease becomes one of these patients’ biggest concerns.

Why does back pain occur in Polycystic Kidney Disease?

Back or lower side pain is the most common symptom of Polycystic Kidney Disease. When patients are young, kidney cysts are relatively small so they don’t cause any symptoms. However, with age, patients’ cysts grow bigger and bigger. If some of these renal cysts grow too large, one of them ruptures or some kidney stones form, back pain occurs easily. The pain is usually intermittent and dull. In some cases, it can be sudden and sharpened.

◆ Make sure the cause of back pain

Different patients have a great individual difference in the cause of their back pain, so they should do a detailed examination before using any treatment.
