What does pain in the lower back indicate?

i have sharp lower back pain on left side. I don t recall an accident or overexertion. Could this be a kidney stone? I had one a very long time ago. I recently went to my Urologist and they routinely do an echogram on the kidneys. They did not indicate a problem.

Dear sir /madam
How is the character of pain, does the pain radiate to other parts,

Any history of fever

Any history of urinary disturbance

If not it could probably be mechanical pain

Usg didn't suggest any problem so it is less likely a stone
