Intermediate Stomach pains upper&lower & on sides, comes & goes. No pain when pushed, no fever. with all over back, pain & left arm & leg pain.

Stomach/back pain: hello! make a bowel movement diary. I think you are constipated. The back ache is difficult to relate to the stomach pain without invoking catastrophe.

Lower left back pain, tingling sensation and sometimes pain on left leg, what could be the problem?

Lumbar radiculopathy: Pain and tingling sensation down one leg with associated same sided low back pain is most often cause by a pinched nerve. Nerves pass through the lower part of your spinal column before entering and providing nervous supply to your legs. The nerve can get pinched or compressed, usually by an out of place disc, before they enter the leg. This can in turn cause the symptoms your are experiencing. ...Read more

Scoliosis: At times when there is a leg length discrepancy it is due to a pelvic tilt from scoliosis which can give rise to intermittent and chronic low back pain. A word to the wise- be mindful of posture and position with proper back biomechanics and strengthening of the core. Hopefully this will prevent episodes of low back pain and will keep your weight down. Ask your doc about a scoliosis survey. ...Read more
