Pain in lower right back, feels like bruise. Started going to gym. Any ideas?

Hi for the last 3 days i have been having pain in my low right back, where i supposed my right kidney is. It hurts but the pain feels like a bruise. I haven't fell down or knocked on to anything so i don't know why i am having this pain. I have checked and see a small bruise but the pain seems too much for the small bruise. I recently started going to the gym

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
Your lower back pain and small bruise seems to be due to muscle strain might be while doing exercise in Gym. I suggest you not do do exercise that involve painful muscle for some time. Take rest. If bruise persisted for long time or another appeared without reason ,get it evaluated by physician.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...

Hi friend,

It seems like you must have injure your muscle on your back while you were working out. As you said that there is a bruise, this definitely tells a twitch in muscle at that area. Kindly consult a GP near you and get well soon.Also stop going to gym for a few days until your lowe back heals.A detailed examination is needed in your case to confirm if the internal organs are injured or not.

Take care and have a nice time
