Hi,

If the pain is in loin area urinary tract infection or kidney stones should be ruled out. Urine routine investigation and ultrasound examination will be needed to rule out that.

If that is clear then it can be due to back muscle spasm or lumbar spine issue. A short course of muscle relaxants like thiocolchicoside and NSAIDs like Aceclofenac will be helpful.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
