Thank you for the information. based on your description, you are not showing any alarming features. Most likley your pain is related to your spine which could be musculoskletal or degenerative joint disease. In most of the cases, taking rest, using pain meds local/oral, and using heating pad is helpful.

Dr. Shah :

In some of the cases when there is no recovery within week,, then x ray/MRI can be done to see inside.

Dr. Shah :

I don't think that your pain is related to other organ system.....

Customer:

The nature of the pain and the location of the source contra-indicates musculosketal or joint involvement. What body organ is situated in that area?

Dr. Shah :

kidney is located in that area, but your do not have any obvious kidney related symptoms...

Customer:

Thank you.

Dr. Shah :

A urine test and ultrasound can rule out the possibility of kidney problem, if any exist.
