I just started today feeling pain in my lower back (kidney area) that wraps around to the side and sometimes the front. It's constant what should I do?

Low back pain: The kidneys are a lot higher in the back than most would think. If you put your finger in the pit of your stomach and draw a line around back on both sides, that's the normal position of the kidneys. If your pain is in that area, then it could be your kidneys, if it is lower and very likely could be muscular. Either way if it persists or increases in frequency duration severity have it checked out. ...Read more

Pressure feeling above public line and Lower back only started after had bm after being constipated. Could I still have more stuck

Maybe: You could still be constipated but the other possibility based on the location of the pressure, is a urinary tract infection. If you still feel constipated, take a bowel stimulant like Miralax (polyethylene glycol) or Magnesium citrate. Then if you still have that pressure and/or burning urination, see your doctor for a urine test. Constipation can lead to urine retention due to pressure on the bladder. ...Read more

I've got pain in my lower back and its giving me the feeling of having a numb or dead foot wht could this be?

Pinched nerve: Likely a 'pinched nerve' in your back, most often at your age from a bulging disk. If a bit of recumbent rest (and avoiding lifting, bending, even sitting a long time) and over the counter anti-inflammatory pain medicines (ibuprofen, naproxyn) don't improve the situation, seeing a doctor for an MRI of the back and perhaps an EMG (electrical test) would define things better. ...Read more

If you live in an: Area /house with an ghost, then yes if you think you have been possessed.

Anti-inflammatories such as Ibuprofen and gentle exercises such as walking frequently help solve this problem, however, in some cases more advanced medications such as Gabapentin or even surgery are required.

I horse back ride. Suddenly in the past month I've noticed a pulling and achy feeling in my lower back while riding. Kinda where kidneys are. Ideas?

Back pain: You have back pain of some sort. Possibly a lumbar sprain with the strain of "up and down" horse-back riding. Your kidneys are more in the middle of your back as opposed to lower. Difficult to DX over the computer, see your dr. For an eval and if you notice a correlation to h-b riding and pain, hold off on the riding until you get the area looked at. Good luck. ...Read more
