Brief Answer:
Can be urine infection or calculus.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The severe back pain that is not affected by moving arms or legs can be due to a urinary infection or a renal calculus. This can be diagnosed after a urine test and an ultrasound scan. Do wait for the results. You can have an over the counter anti spasmodic and plenty of cranberry juice and see if it helps.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
