I am not sure exactly what nerves innervate the back, but I would assume that it could definitely refer to the abdomen.

Pain in the upper right thigh could be due to a broken hip, a pulled muscle, tendonitis, referred pain from the knee, or referred pain from the abdomen.

Sciatica is the swelling of the Sciatic nerve. This nerve sends messages to the brain. When it swells, pain is sent to the legs and numbness and pain is often felt.

Referred pain-- The presence of pain in an area other than where it originates. In some pleurisy cases, referred pain occurs in the neck, shoulder, or abdomen.

Sciatica can range from a low pain, to a severe pain in the lower back. It can cause it to be painful to move your arms, legs or even just rolling over in bed can cause terrible pains.

Yes. There are muscles in your right abdomen that you could pull which would cause pain.

Shingles can cause localized pain in almost any part of the body. Sciatica can cause pain in the lower back and one or both legs.

Referred pain is perceived in the lower back but is caused by inflammation elsewhere--often in the kidneys or lower abdomen.

Sciatica pain is caused by the irritation or compression of the sciatica nerve. Symptoms include general back pain, numbness, tingling, muscle weakness and loss of tendon reflexes.

Sciatica pain may feel like a bad leg cramp that lasts for weeks or months before it goes away. You may have pain, especially when you sit, sneeze or cough. Discomfort ranges from mild to incapacitating, and may be accompanied by tingling, numbness or muscle weakness. Like the term slipped disc, sciatica pain is a term often misused to describe any pain in the leg that may originate in the lower back. True sciatica only involves pain caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve or its branches. Pain in the front of the thigh or groin, although possibly referred from the low back, is not sciatica. Sciatica is a set of symptoms not a diagnosis. This point is important, because treatment for sciatica pain will often vary, depending on what is irritating the nerve, causing the pain.

One of the myths associated with sciatica is the need to rest in bed. In fact, mild exercise is one of the best treatments for the pain. Prolonged sitting is a primary cause of many cases of sciatica.

Pain. Lots of pain. Deep, severe pain is the main symptom of sciatica. When you cough or sneeze it becomes worse. You may be unable to move your foot too.

Methods of sciatica pain relief include taking over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications, prescription pain medications and physical therapy treatments. In addition, during the acute phase, resting may help alleviate symptoms. Sciatica can cause excruciating pain that starts in the lower back and radiates down the buttock and back of the leg. Another example of sciatica pain relief is applying hot compresses or a heating pad to the affected area. In addition, applying an ice pack to the painful area might also help improve symptoms.
