Severe lower back pain causing painful movements, pain in abdominal region, nausea, shortness of breath. Cause?

Hi. Yesterday morning I woke up with severe lower back pain to the point where I was having discomfort making any movement at all. I m a healthy 18 year old, and I thought maybe this back pain was menstrual cramps but it s nearly 4 in the morning right now and I am having the same sharp pains in my abdominal region, below my belly button. I feel nauseous and I m having shortness of breath because it is so painful to breathe.

Hello Dear and thanks for the query
Your pain can be due to a renal colic or Infection of the GI track like Appendicitis. You need to go to the ER and get some test done like Complete blood count and sonography of abdomen.
You can take some anti-spasmodic drugs like dicylcomine to reduce the pain. Analgesic drugs like Ibuprofen also help if anti-spasmodic is not available.
Keep yourself hydrated and take only light and fresh food.
Avoid all type of fatty and oily food products.
If vomiting continues than stop orally and go to the ER immediately.
Hope this will help you.
Best Wishes
