Answer . could be related to a urinary tract infection.
It's not spinal stenosis - stenosis does not cause that type of pain, though it can lead to other problems that can cause it. In addition to stenosis, disk problems for over 2…0 years, 3 major spinal operations, I also have a specific hereditary problem that led to my condition and degeneration. I've been in formal Pain Mgt for over 10 years, requiring the strongest opiates. I have had disk herniations and pain occur and reoccur many times over the years. Certain disks press on certain nerves that can be traced by the pain, determining the origin of the nerve being compressed. You have 1 or 2 potential problems, depending on how far up the pain is on your back, or if you've had a specific injury recently or you play contact sports. If the pain is sharp and you can follow it with your finger, what you likely have is a herniated disk at the L3/L4 disk or L4/L5 disk, most likely the L3/L4. The other is there's an offchance you might have more than one. The best way to determine which disk is by tracing the rout of the nerve pain. If it's down the back of the leg it's in the lower vertebrae, L5-S1. L3 and L4 pain will radiate from the middle of the back, down to the waist, across the hip of one side, across the side of the leg, across the thigh and finally stopping at the inside knee, depending on the severity of the problem. If the upper pain is in the shoulder area it's likely unrelated. If it's within a foot of the waistline just above the buttocks, offcenter of the spine itself, then it's likely related to the disk causing the leg pain as the pain normally traces the nerve path. In any event, you need to get to you doctor ASAP, and cease any lifting over a few pounds. You also need to start reducing the inflammation to get the disk to retract into the membrane. My 2 favorite non prescription meds are Bayer Back and Body Aspirin, and Tylenol Rapid Release geltabs. Start tracking your pain as well - severity on a 1-10 scale (10 being unbearable), the location (draw a simple body picture and note the location), the time of day it occurs or if it's constant, what you're doing if it gets worse, anything. It will help you later on when you see a doctor. You can also get those forms (Pain diaries) at Http://www.painfoundation.org.
Sciatic pain can be identified by its definite pattern, usually starting in your buttocks, but can also start from the lower back. A feeling of pain and tenderness is th…en extended down the back of your thigh and into the lower part of your leg, sometimes the pain even reaches the soles of your feet. This is a gnawing pain that tends to spasm. The clinical diagnosis and medical term used for sciatica is radiculopathy. It means that a disc has protruded from its normal position in the vertebral column and is putting pressure on the radicular nerve, situated in the lower back. Radiculopathy or sciatica is broadly used to describe a form of pain that radiates into your leg. Pain running down the back of your leg is symptomatic to sciatica, but pain running in the front of your leg, or general lower back and leg pain is technically not true symptoms of sciatica.
it could be that the person has back spasm
There may be several causes of pain in the lower back on the right side above the pelvic area. These causes may include a herniated disc, joint dysfunction, spinal stenosi…s, muscle strain, sciatica, kidney stones or a urinary tract infection.
Usually it is caused my muscle spasms... If it occurs with bending, twisting or lifting heavy items, or if you have a tender area there, that's your best bet...
Could be Kidney infection? Just a suggestion
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 you are in severe pain, you need to go and see a qualified medical practitioner (a doctor) as soon as possible. If the pain is very bad you should get yourself to the… emergency department of a hospital.
You have lower back pain and abdominal pain but only on your right side Pain is chronic but there is no pain during your menstrual period What can cause this?
If the pain is sharp and off-center a bit from the middle of the back around the waistline, you could have mild disk herniation pressing on a nerve. This kind of pain ty…pically radiates into the posterior tissue (front of the body). That it's only on the right side is typical of disk problems, as you usually feel it only on one side. As far pain going away during your period, several factors can affect disk pain. Many women usually take some type of medicine to ease with cramping during their period, and the types of meds taken usually reduce inflammation. Disk herniations are reduced by anti-inflammatory meds. Also, hormonal changes, and the bloating and other uncomfortable effects associated during menstrual cycles can mask pain or alter pain perceptions in the brain. While the pain may still be there, pain in other areas makes it seem like it's not - the brain can be fooled by other pains and distractions, which is one method of mental pain control. However, the most likely explanation is that disk pain, especially if it's not that bad (bad herniations will leave you unable to walk and in excruciating pain), will eventually go away if the disk inflammation hasn't been aggravated further and allowed to ease. Typically when we feel pain, we tend to lower activities that aggravate it. If you have accompanying pain in the back of the leg, knee, thigh or side of the right leg, a disk problem is even more likely. In the end it depends on the type of pain. Disk pain is sharp and sometimes burning, depending on the severity. Muscle spasms feel tight and somewhat sharp. Muscle pain is achy and throbbing. Having severe back/spine problems for many years, I've required the use of opiates for a long time to deal with my pain. However, there are some OTC meds that I use when I don't need or feel like taking them. Bayer Back and Body Aspirin is one; Tylenol Rapid Release gel-tabs are the other. If you think the descriptions I've listed fit what you're experiencing, then your best option is to see either a Pain specialist or a Chiropractor. At the very least you should let your regular doctor know about it.
Sounds like a neck strain and/or misalignment in the neck. Misalignments put pressure on nerves, and that causes pain. If you strained a muscle perhaps in the lower righ…t neck it typically will affect the nerves on that side, causing neck pain in that area.

Depending on many factors, the most common reasons for this are muscular or skeletal damage or injury around the L4-L5 vertebrae. If this is the case, the injury can be …temporary, although most people eventually suffer from back pain in the lumbar region eventually -- most likely as a result of us deciding to walk upright instead of swinging from trees -- a design flaw. Coupled with a fever, other possibiliies exist. Kidney infections are possible, as are infections of the reproductive tract in women. However, these are far less likely than the first guess.
I have problem with my right foot, and the pain is in the right side.
Pain in the lower back on the right hand side can be attributed to a herniated disc, sciatica, muscle strain or a urinary tract infection. Such pain may also be caused by …spinal stenosis or joint dysfunction. If the situation does not improve, it would be best to seek medical advice.
Back pain lower right side causes are: Lower back and kidney disorders.
If you mean gas in the digestive tract, then yes it can.
