I am a 50 yo female suffering from sharp, shooting pain on my right side about at the waist. It is not back pain and is not radiating down my leg.

It may be bursitis

Leg
You may have inflammation of your trochanteric bursa, a fluid filled sac that reduces friction at the outside of your hip. Try ice and antiflammatory medicine and consult a doctor.

I am having lower back pain-mainly right side, pain in my right side-around the curve of my waist, Feeling nauseous, and light headed with chills.

Sounds like it could be a kidney infection. You should see a doctor right away for a urine test. Don't wait several days to be seen since these can become severe if left untreated too long.

This may be due to hurting ribs. Costochondritis (inflammation around Ribcage joints) can cause this.

Back pain above waist on left side. Kindney infection?

Back pain on left

Kidney
These symptoms can be a kidney stone or infection. if burning upon urination or blood seen in the toilet after urination is a sign of infection. However can be other kidney related diseases. More tests and physical evaluation needs to be done to pinpoint the cause. Hopefully this is just a strained muscle on the left back.

There are many possibilities that could be responsible for your condition. You should call your doctor for a check up. E.g. you may have a nerve pinch in your back causing a sciatic nerve pain into your leg.

Lower back pain for over five years from a car accident and numbness from the waist down. What can I do to fix this?

Work Up

Lower_back
Hopefully, with these symptoms you have had your back pain and leg symptoms worked up with a MRI at the very least. It is important to have a correct diagnosis. Numbness from the waist down is a very concerning finding. You would probably benefit from a visit to your internist/family physician and perhaps from seeing a neurologist.
