Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The pain can be due to a few probables.
It can be due to kidney or urinary in origin.
Common causes of kidney pain are an infection or stone.
Urine may appear normal but there can be urge.
Nausea may occur too.
Other cause can be a pinched nerve at the back.
In osteoporosis of spine there can be impingement on nerve.
This can be affected by posture.
You can take tylenol or motrin now.
Warm application will help.
Please take plenty of fluid.
If you do not get any relief, I would advise to take an examination by doctor in ER.
He can take a few tests like urine analysis, ultrasound etc.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
