Customer Question

My lower left back hurts and I feel like I have to go to the bathroom a lot. Nothing happens when I try to go and I want to flex my back constantly. It gives me some relief. What is my problem?
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: My back has ached on and off since Sunday. This urge to go constantly started yesterday.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No. I'm in pretty good shape. I play racquetball and golf a lot and I'm rarely sick.
