How is urine and stool?

Does the pain radiate to left?

Did you have any test or treatment?

Did you have any tenderness / other symptom or previous illness?

What is your age?

Thank you.

Thank you for the information,

The symptoms seems to be due to radiculopathy where pressure on the nerve in the spine produces pain.

Other probability is kidney stone though you do not have any urinary symptom.

As the pain is persisting for last 8 months, I would advise you not to wait any more.

You should consult doctor for examination and investigations to find out the proper diagnosis.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
