I Have Been Getting Intermittent Pain In Right Side Of Middle Back

I Have Been Getting Intermittent Pain In Right Side Of Middle Back

It mostly comes on towards the end of the day. Sometimes it's just a dull ache other times it's quite incapacitating. I have been on Actonel for nearly 8 months. Has anyone experienced anything similar? My endocrinologist doesn't think it's from the Actonel. I have had a cat scan and nothing has shown up;it's not imagined!
