Sharp pain in lower back. All my blood reports are normal

Hi, a little over two weeks ago my lower back suddenly started hurting, no sore muscles, just a sharp pain when doing just about everything in lower back. it feels like a knife stab in middle, lower back, a hand or so above tailbone. it just happened..any thoughts? i m 6 2 , 215lb, VERY muscular , 11% bodyfat, cholesterol, triglycerides, all that stuff is normal. i m not diabetic. just a 19 year old guy wondering why the heck my back is hurting. in the past if something hurts, even severe, a few days and its gone, or dull. any help on this please?

Hello. I had unprotected sex on July 19th. My last period began on July 11th and ended on July 13th. on July 23rd I went to the doctor because I had a sharp pain in my right lower back and felt very nauseous. They ended up giving me a urinary test to see if I was pregnant.. turns out I wasn t pregnant. On July 28th, I was experiencing extreme pain where my right ovary is.. it was so bad I couldn t function properly. I went to the emergency and they told me I had a UTI... upon further blood tests, they revealed to me that my hcg hormone levels were at 17 and that I might be pregnant... my partner did not ejaculate in me and I am worried that I might be pregnant. I am going back on august 1st for further testing to see if the hcg hormone went up. Should I be worried? is it normal for hcg levels to be slightly higher and not be pregnant? could it be because of the UTI, or my pituitary gland secreting the hormone ??? I am really nervous and want to know if it is normal. I have given the dates so you can see where I was in my cycle.

I fractured my cauxis bone many years ago. I have always had hip problems (a birth defect left my left leg 1 1/2 shorter than my right). I have also developed plantar fascitis on the right foot & same side as my lower back sharp pain (around kidney area). It comes as a SHARP pain when i do normal activities. What can it be & how can it be helped?

I have a sharp pain in my lower back that feels to me to be nerve. The pain is only on my left side, and I can fell it going down the back of my leg. This isn t the first time this has happened and it only happens every so often. There is no motion that I do to trigger it, it just happens without warning. Also most of the mussels in my back on my left side tense up and makes it hard to walk and do normal activity.

Results - minimal relief for less than 2 hrs. Trans ESI #1, May 1, L4/5, followed by 5 wks. PT. Results = 70% pain dimminishment - success duration = 5 wks. followed by full return of symptoms.

Dr. referred me to his in-house associate today for 2nd opinion. That Dr. suspects the problem is the hip, but agrees back is a mess---just not the source of the severe butt/calf pain. Ordering a hip MRI. Mentioned a condition with 10 syllables that I didn t catch, but started with glute xxxxxx. MRI should confirm. Any thoughts what condition he suspects?
