Lower and middle back pain, sore to touch. Taking antibiotics. Cure for symptoms?

lower back pain on right side and also middle lower back sharp pains and sore to touch, very tender like there is a bruise but no sign of a bruise. I seen my Doctor two weeks ago and he put me on antibiotics for kidney infection. The medication did not help and now the pain has moved to the lower middle section where it is sore to touch. Can't sleep at night because it hurts to lay on it and move around. What do you think might be wrong?

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
From description pain seems to be inflammatory in nature.I suggest you to get it evaluated by orthopaedician to rule out any infective pathology.
You have to take bed rest, avoid forward bending, taking anti inflammatory drugs & muscle relaxant. You can take Tablet Motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily).
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
Dr Saurabh Gupta.

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain that you have described is likely to be due to a muscular pain. This is not likely to be due to any infection. So, taking antibiotics will not help you. You need pain killers along with muscle relaxants for relief.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
