Spinal disc problem.
Both can cause this and can come and go.

I have a different answer for you
CT is not good for imaging the spine.
This is the first expert. Dr. Thomas.
Always find me for fast, safe and correct answers.
As I told you, you need an MRI.
This will show disc and nerve problems.
It can also show abdominal scar tissue.
In fact, CT does not.

I give fast and correct answers, so find me by request and insist on me in the future.
Additional information: I suggest you see an MD of physical medicine and rehabilitation.
This doctor would have ordered the MRI.
Thanks for this reply
No one yet has attempted to gather any more information
The most important thing to ask is what triggers it?
what makes your pain worse?
