What causes severe lower left back pain?

I have had bad lower back pain on the lower left side for about 10 days. A back, spine dr told me it is muscle spasms. I started therapy today. After I left ther, I had severe pain that moved all over my stomach and hips. My stomach has a dull ache now and when I press on it lightly it hurts. My back also hurts. Could this all be from muscle spasms?

Hi i am Dr Ahmed Aly
thanks for using HealthcareMagic site ,
I had gone through your question and understand your concerns ..

I hope you feel better soon , in my opinion i don't think that your stomach pain is related to your low back pain and hip pain . the gastric pain maybe due to eating any type of foods or drinks that cause gastritis .
Your low back pain and hip pain maybe relted to muscular spasm or sciatica due to nerve compression . in many cases pain subsides simultaneously without medications only with rest .
Try to avoid over weighing , heavy lifting , obesity , vigorous movements and bad sleeping or sitting postures . Physiotherapy is very beneficial you may use hot massages with topical anti-inflammatory gels and take painkillers like advil tab when needed , vitamin B12 supplements and muscle relaxants will be effective in most of cases .
If pain persists i recommend further investigations like MRI spine and follow them up with your physician for proper evaluation and management .
