Back pain: There are numerous causes of lower back pain. It is difficult to reach a diagnosis without a proper examination of your back and abdomen. The back pain could arise from your kidneys, rib cage, spine or hip and pelvic joints. It could be due to inflammation from an old injury, arthritis or disc pain, hip bursitis, kidney stones - the possibilities are endless. You need to see your doctor
