Hi Kndriv,

Welcome back!  Some of the causes for lower back pain can be.Injury or overuse of muscles, ligaments, and joints. Pressure on nerve roots in the spinal canal. Caused by: 

  • A herniated disc, sometimes brought on by repeated vibration or motion (as during sport activity or when using a machine or lifting in the wrong way) or by a sudden heavy strain or increased pressure to the lower back.
  • Osteoarthritis, usually caused by getting older. When osteoarthritis affects the small joints in the spine, it can lead to back pain. Osteoarthritis in other joints, such as the hips, can cause you to limp or to change the way you walk. This can also lead to back pain.
  • Spondylolisthesis, a defect that allows one vertebra to slide over another.
  • Spinal stenosis, or narrowing of the spinal canal, which is usually caused by getting older.
  • Fractures of the vertebrae caused by a lot of force, such as from an auto or bicycle accident, a direct blow to the spine, or compressing the spine by falling onto the buttocks or head.
  • Spinal deformities, including curvature problems such as severe scoliosis or kyphosis.
  • Spinal tumors, which are growths on the bones and ligaments of the spine, on the spinal cord, or on nerve roots.

 It's important to see your doctor, he can diagnose the cause of your lower pain.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question.  So sorry to hear how you feel.  Not sure if your pain is abdominal or back pain. But, many things can be the cause of your pain. If it's in your lower abdominal here are some causes for it. 

cystitis (inflammation of the bladder), inflammation of the collecting system of one or both kidneys (pyelonephritis), kidney stones or uncommonly tumours.

Constipation and diarrhoea can be painful in themselves, and the change in bowel habit usually identifies the pain as coming from the bowel

endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, ovarian cysts, fibroids and problems related to the early stages of pregnancy such as miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy.

It's important to have your doctor examine you.  Many things can be the cause of your lower pain.


Best of luck,

It is not in the abdomine, it is my lower right back
