Lower back pain when walking. Can you help?

I have a pain in the lower left side of my back area. It is sharp and happens mainly when I walk. Seems to get worse as the day progresses. Thought at first it was my back, but it isn t. More on the side instead. Hurts so bad I can hardly walk. Feels good sitting. Trying to determine if I should go see a doctor. Thinking I will. Can you help?

sure you should see a doctor. your problem seems to be related to muscle cramp of external oblique which is on the side and is aggravated while activity. you should try taking a muscle relaxant , rest for 2-3 days avoid heavy activity, and maintain good posture. rest will be fine. if this doesnt relieve pain sure consult a doctor.
