Several weeks ago I had disabling back pain for two days. It was focused in the lower left back. Two days later my wife had the same symptoms. The pain has since shifted down our left legs. No other symptoms such as fever or cough exist. The doctor thought we both might have a kidney stone, but that seems highly unlikely.
Did you or your wife do anything strenuous? If yes, then probably you both have a slipped disc or pinched nerve in lower back. Please show this to a doctor. Take rest for 2-3 days along with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory such as Tylenol, Aleve or Mobic. Please consult your doctor regarding this. You both may not need physiotherapy too. Take care!
