Doctor can examine: Some common causes of lower back pain include: back muscle strain, back ligament sprain, herniated disc, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, urine infection, kidney infection, kidney stone, spinal tumor, tumor in the kidney or other places, fractured vertebra, fibromyalgia, other bacterial infection, etc... A woman in her 60's with new, uncomfortable back pain can see her doctor today or the ER.
