I thought I was having back spasms because of the pain in my back on left side right about in middle, but now I am having more frequency to urinate and the pain is coming and going. I took a urelle and will call my dr. In the morning. I think I should call my urologist instead of treating it as if it is back spasms. This is the second time this has happened. What is the best way to know for sure?
