cramping lower back

Oct 14, 2014 7:18 PM

I feel so awful. I started having bad cramping in my lower back and I thought my period was coming on. 4 days later and the pain is so bad by the end of the day that I have to lay against a heating pad to function . 800mg of motrin is barely touching it. Now I feel like I'm going to vomit :-(

you sure need some muscle relaxers. I hope you feel better soon

Is there anything you may have done to initiate the pain? A fall, or something like that? Could it be kidney trouble? You could try soaking in a hot bath, or use an icy hot patch, and see if that helps. If nothing else works though, you may need to see a doctor.

have your kidneys checked out. I had pain off and on and since my diagnosis I now recall that pain and it was my kidneys. have your pee checked for blood and consider kidney stones too. I have IgA Nephropathy. it was verified with a biopsy. Just a thought.

Kidney infection? Do get checked out.
