Spinal stenosis ?'s: Constriction of the spinal canal can cause referred pain, but urinary "frequency/urgency" usually results from infection, which will also cause similar pain as described. See your gyn physician for an exam and urine culture, and visit an orthopedic surgeon for possible treatment of lumber stenosis.
