Unhappy SEVERE pain in my back

How do I know if its my back or kidneys? Pain in my middle & lower back. NOTHING is helping the pain. It started out of no where. I do have a history of inflamed discs but this pain is different than normal. Tightness, throbbing and piercing pain. I took Motrin 600 mg and 500 mg Tylenol (not at the same time) and it did absolutely nothing. My copay at the ER is $75 (USD) and didn't want to go if its something minor. It's been almost 24 hours since it started.

Hi beena, Welcome to healthboards! Im so sorry that you are having severe pain! Do you have a history of kidney problems, infections, stones? What else did your dr say when he said inflamed discs. What kind of back problems have you had? I have had both & would like to help you but need some more info. Do you feel like this is an emergency or could you see the
dr today? Did you hurt your back recently or do you know what proceeded
the pain? When my kidney/kidneys hurt it is half under my ribs in the back & half not, vertically or if i drew a line around to the front it would be above my belly button. The lumbar spine that hurts me is lower than belly button if i drew a line around to front. Thank you, gmak

Re: SEVERE pain in my back

Great to see you back gmak! . What a great way to describe it! Above belly button- possibly kidney issues, below belly button- possibly back issues! I've never heard it explained that way, but it really is the most simple easiest way to think if it!! You are a doll!! Glad to see you posting again! I know people around here missed you because you are a GREAT ASSETT to these boards!!
