I having lower back pain. It feel like it in the joints of the lower back. The pain isn't bad when I walk stand straight of sit but when I bend or trun it's bad. My doctor told me my back was weak and I needed to excerse. I'm doing that now. Could this be a sign of kidney problems.
Kidney problems may present with back pains but it may also present with other symptoms as well.
Do you have any associated fever, nausea and vomiting?
Any recent changes in urinary patterns, pain in urination, increase in urinary frequency?
Are there swelling of extremities and puffiness of the face?
A urinalysis will be able to determine if an underlying infection is present. If your urinalysis is normal and an infection or possible kidney stone is excluded and the back pain persists, a musculoskeletal problem has to be ruled out.A musculoskeletal pain appears to be a strong differential in your case given that the pain is aggravated by certain body positions.
A referral to a spine specialist or rehabilitation medicine specialist may be able to help.Avoid engaging in any strenuous activities that requires plenty of bending and straining for the moment. A seat and bed with good back and neck suppot may be beneficial.Low impact sports like swimming may also help.Discuss withyour physicians the advantages of physical therapy given that other nonmusculoskeletal problems have been ruled out.
