Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

* As per my surgical experience, the strained lower back is not giving pressure on the bladder, it is the underlying gravels or calculus in the urinary system which is responsible for the same.
* Drink plenty of liquids and get a CT scan of the abdomen & pelvis done for the same.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My beta- hCG is 424 and they told me I am 4-5 weeks pregnant. This was on this past Wednesday. The reason I went in was because of a lot of right sided then bi lateral abdominal pain followed by bi lateral low back pressure that woke me up at night. This concerned me so I went in and they told me I was pregnant. I am going in tomorrow for another ultrasound to rule our ectopic pregnancy . It was not painful the episodes I had it was pressure like intense menstrual cramps . When can an ectopic pregnancy be seen or an intrauterine pregnancy? I have not had this pain since.
