Doctor can check: Back pain on either side of the spine (called flank pain by doctors) can be caused by kidney disease or other abdominal disorders, especially if the person doesn't remember hurting her back by lifting or working too much. Other abdominal problems (occasionally serious ones such as a tumor) can also show up as back pain, so evaluation by a doctor is needed.

See doctor: Severe pain in the upper abdomen could be a sign of a stomach ulcer or a blockage in the intestines. I would see a doctor for evaluation.
