What causes lower back pain on left side and swelling in lower abdomin with slight pain on left side of belly button?
If it hurts more with bending and twisting, it is most likely muscle-related. It it hurts when someone pushes on your abdomen, but not when you bend or twist, then it is more apt to be internal. There are hernias that can cause a bulging in the area you indicate, but I doubt that a hernia in the front-side of your abdomen would be a cause of back pain, unless you have more than one thing going on... If this continues, or begins to get worse, then I strongly suggest you be seen by your family doctor for possible Xrays, etc and surgical referral...

Lower left side belly pain may be a sign of colon problems, appendicitis, or female reproductive issues. Abnormal blood vessels may also be to blame.
Answer If the pain is constant and/or you are running a temperature, give your doctor a call. There really isn't anyway to diagnose on a website. Answer gullbl…adder infection For start of, its GALLBLADDER. And second its not. I had mine taken out YEARS ago when I was quite young & I had a uterine iunfection recently and everytime I eat now, I get severe lower back pain and a pain in my left rib...could be to do with the kidneys am still investigating.! The gallbladder is on the RIGHT hand side of your body by the way!! Well, I had pain on my left side, near the spleen. I don't know what it is yet... I don't know if it's spleen or any other organ... on my left. Your pain could be a urinary tract infection. Consult your doctor to be sure.
. Arthiritis . Pulled muscle . Slipped disc . Lots of other things - see a doctor if it goes on for longer than a week or gets really bad Answer … One of your vertebra could be out of alignment or the disk could have fuse or slipped. It is best to see a doctor if this continues for more than 3 days, so if this is happening to you stop asking us questions and get to the doctors!
If the pain is sharp, and traces down the left side of the spine to the lower back, across the waist and hip, across the top of the thigh and down the inner knee, the problem …is the L3/L4 disk pressing on the spinal nerve at that point. It typically sharp at the mid and lower back, and burning as it travels further, though it will occasionally be sharp all the time too. You can literally trace the nerve pathway with your finger by following the pain if it's bad enough. ---- I have this pain at the moment, I had it several years ago and it lasted for months I had a gluten intollerance test and it told me that I was intollerant to gluten, I cut out gliuten and within 2 wekd it had gone, its now come back although I dont eat anything with gluten in it. I cannot understand why the pain goes into my left lower back and left leg...anyone else get this ?
it is reffered to as a cramp or a stitch in the side. When you over exert your body to physical activity, like running- or even fast dancing. That is what causes a stitch in …your side. Try to avoid it or improve your stamina to hep avoid it.
A strained or pulled muscle, you may also have sciatica, a trip to the chiropracter would be a good idea.
Anything going on in the left side, is always a good reason for concern that where your heart is. If its sharp pain, located front & center in your chest, or takes your breath… away, get to a Dr or emergency room & have it checked out. If the pain is low & in the back just above the belt line, It could be your kidneys. If you drink a lot of tea, coffee or soda & no water, just stop those for a few days & drink only & lots of water for 2 days & see if that flushes the kidneys. That is very common, specially in young people.

If the pain is in the soft area above your hips it's probably a bladder or kidney problem. Drink lots of cranberry juice and see if it goes away.
That could depend on whether or not you are a male or female. Nonetheless, any pain of unknown etiology (cause or origin) should be investigated by your doctor. Also, if… the pain does not go away with your regular pain relievers, you should see your doctor. It would be foolish to try and diagnose you in this format.
If the pain is stabbing and intense, and radiates, it's consistent with nerve compression pain caused by either a bulging disk or a disk that's fully herniated. If the p…ain goes down the back of your legs, it's the Sciatic nerve being compressed by the L4/5 or L5/S1 disk; if the pain stops at the inside of the knee, it's the L3/4 disk nerve being compressed. Regardless, the treatment is the same - get off your feet, and lie down. Sitting is out as it also puts pressure on the lower spine. If it lasts in its intensity for more than 3 days, you'll probably require an Epidural or Facet Injection (local or targeted steroid injections to reduce inflammation) so that the disk can retract and heal. However, be aware that for most, the shots and resulting pain are as bad or worse than the pain it's intended to deal with. In the years when I still got benefit from shots, it generally took 2 or 3 days for the pain from the injection to subside. Muscle spasms caused by the pain of the nerve compression adds to the problem, and is the reason muscle relaxers are commonly prescribed. As the muscles / tendons contract during pain spasms, the area around the nerve becomes tighter, increasing the nerve compression and subsequently the pain. It's a vicious cycle. As I said, pain lasting in intensity for more than 2 or 3 days needs to be checked by a doctor. The severity of the pain also can give you an indication of just how bad the problem is - if you can walk without support (cane, etc.) then it's not that bad, but still should be checked anyway. If you can walk but need support, then it's more serious and you should hve it checked immediately.
You should take your daughter to the doctor's office. It could become very serious.
It might be a kidney problem. See a doctor. It is serious even if it is not a kidney problem.
Let me start of by saying that you have to go to a doc for a difinitive answer. I'm gonna give you a diffrential diagnosis, so it can be any of these things (or even none of t…hese since I don't have your medical history). The area you're describing contains your kidney. You couldve even pulled a muscle and that's why it hurts. Does it burn when you pee? What color is your pee? Do you drink enough water? Now, if it is your kidneys. You could have pyelonephritis(kidney infection, if uve had a uti for a looong time and didn't get it treated soon. The infection couldve spread up to your kidney) or a kidney stone.
This may be due to extresive excersises. If you have been stretching a lot lately, you may have been overworking your muscles, try taking it easy next time you're working out.… Your neck may be swollen due to the swelling of lymph glands, which may mean you have mono. If so, see a doctor. They might also be calcium deposits. The lower back pain could be a result of a number of things. If you are a girl, your period could be starting soon. You may have been standing up for a long time. If you have numbness, or loose control of your bladder, this could be very serious, so see a physician. This could mean herniation to one or more areas of the spine. Feel better! I hope this helped.
THere are a few possible causes for this, if it's not a kidney problem, it could be muscle strain, pullled muscle, sciatcia, bulgind or herniated disc, it really depends on yo…ur sumptoms. You should get checked by a doctor. Until then you can use the website in the resource here, to help diagnose yourself, according to your symptoms.
This could be due to fibroids when they press on the spinal nerves.
