Throbbing lower back pain. Not pregnant. Could it be a nerve pain or kidney pain? Have hypothyroidism

For the last month I ve had a throbbing lower back pain . Seems like it could ve been kidney-related, but I recently had a general checkup in January and blood work done and my kidneys are fine. I also haven t had my period for about 4 months now. I m normally irregular, but have never had this long a time in between periods. I took two pregnancy tests and I m not pregnant. My OBGYN had told me last year that I had a terratoma (large cyst) and that it may just be nerve pain from that, but never pursued it and the pain went away and returned about a month ago. Since then, it s been far more severe and painful than ever before. Other than this, I don t suffer from anything else except hypothyroidism caused by Hashimotos Disease that I take levothyroxide for. Any thoughts?

teratoma is a tumour, but where it is situated. kidney related pain can not be ruled out with blood tests. only if you do ultrasound scan we can find out any renal stone or other kidney related problems. another thing, your low back pain may be due to musculoskeletal problems. i want to know your weight. you may need back muscle strenghthening excercises.
