User:I am getting pain in sacral (b/w hips back side) and gluteal (buttocks). It started at 2010 as per orthopedic doctor I was taken pain killer as long as 6 months. Pain decreased but now started again. If I eats potatoes and eggs the pain will increase. I want to know is it arthritis or other else. Recently I have been diagnosed by Kidney stone
User:hello Dr.
User:Please read the above problem and suggest the treatment
Doctor:Usually back pains subside in 1 month
Doctor:But if the pain stays for longer time or is severe
Doctor:then it is better to go for tests and confirm the reason
Doctor:as far as the pain in back is concerned, strengthening back exercises along with calcium is recommended
Doctor:But in your case you need to take calcium after getting blood test done for calcium deficiency
Doctor:as calcium may precipitate in the kidney to form stones
