Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Sorry to hear about that. Do you feel any pain in urination too ? Any pain in flanks ? Does the pain radiate to your legs ? How long it has been now
Have you had any MRI or X rays done?
I will advise you to get an MRI done for checking on the spine and vertebra. History of sciatica also points towards a chance of nerve pain. Take plenty of fluids just to be safe with kidney issues. It can be related to kidneys too . You can try Tablet gabapentin with tab naproxen for back pain, it will definitely improve. A scan is however a must do if it doesnot get better with these medications.
If you think its more towards flanks and not in the centre , if its pulsating its most probably kidneys. If central lower back with constant agonizing pain then its most probably because of vertebra compressing nerve roots . Childbirth in women can lead to issues of lower back too.
Do you have any more queries
Yeah it seemms more related to the nerve roots. You can try the medications i advised along with giving your back bit of rest. Topical massage with ibuprofen gel is also helpful.
I hope it was helpful , please reward with a 5 stars rating for my service.Happy to take any more queries.
I would like to know if there is something you are not convinced about
Thats what i am saying any growth like cancer or a slipped disc can cause nerve compression .nerves exit from between vertebra so any deformity in vertebra can cause that. An MRI will help reach diagnosis
It can give us idea about vertebra only but not the spinal cordvor nerves. Its a good idea to get an xray done first
Yeah it would give an idea of abbormal growth if its bony one. Soft spinal cord tumours need an MRI
