Brief Answer:
Please get an X-Ray done

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using the 'Ask A Doctor' service.

I have gone through your query in details.

Your pain could be due to muscle spasm. Hot compress should provide relief.

The vicious cycle of pain and spasm needs to be broken and I suggest you take Acetaminophen 650mg twice or thrice daily for the next 3 days. This should ease the problem and make it go away.

If it does not, spinal disc related compression could be another cause to consider. It'll be better to get an X-Ray of Lumbosacral spine (AP and lateral) done and to see a physical therapist with the reports. Based on the findings s/he would be able to demonstrate to you proper exercises that should provide relief.

Feel free to write back.

Regards

thankyou for responding,,,,something that I didn't tell you about, is that I am on Hydrochlorothizide 12.5ml cp.. this was a replacement for high BP pill that seemed to be overworking.. I also have Stage 3 kidney failure.. My regular doctor has never mention the kidney failure. The only reason that I know was from reading the printout from my dr. appt.. I do pretty well with the pain until it gets later in the day, and by dinner time I have to lay down and relieve it a small amount. Sleeping is even miserable

Brief Answer:
please discuss freely with your doctor

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back,

I think that you should directly discuss the issues with your doctor. I doubt whether your doctor will really go without telling you about a stage 3 kidney failure.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards
