Is there anything that can cause twitching in the front of my abdomen with severe lower back pain?

Abdominal spasms: The core is the muscle that supports the spine in front, back and on the sides. The abs, paraspinals, and obliques respectively. If you have pain, muscle spasms may ensue in any of the core group as they overcompensate for those muscles that are painful. Try stretching the abs by twisting when this occurs. Then core exercises as a preventative. ...Read more

Lower back pain just above left buttock and hurts to arch back and then hurts around the side to the low left front abdomen area. What could this be?

Difficult to tell: Without physical exam, but it sounds like it could be facet arthopathy/arthritis. This can often be felt in the back on one side often with radiation around to the side of the flank or feel like a sharp stabbing pain from the back forward. You also have had a c-section, which could lead to different fascial strains or muscular issues that could produce this. I would recommend a good physical exam. ...Read more

I have lower back pain on the left side and that pain is now in the front. Along with pain down the leg but not pass my knee and numbness in the arm?

Back pain: The low back pain and radiation to the knee suggests a pinched nerve in the low back between the lumbar 3/4 disc. The numbness in the arm is unrelated to the low back. See a neurosurgeon or a neurologist to evaluate your pain and numbness to establish a cause and a treatment plan. ...Read more

I have a slight burning feeling in my stomach and lower back pain expecially when I put on my socks or pants goes into front of left hip close to the?

Lumbar radiculopathy: The fact that you experience the discomfort with flexion of the spine associated with dressing suggests to me that you have a compressed nerve in the lumbar spine. An L4 nerve compression would explain low back pain & pain in the upper left leg, but not really explain the stomach discomfort. Can observe if pain is transient and brief, but if increases in intensity, frequency or duration, see doc. ...Read more

6w5d preg. Ultrasound was fine. Brown spotting for 1w. Cramping and lower back pain in lower left side (front and back). Should I be worried?

When was sonogram: If the sonogram was done before you began having spotting and pain then it probably should be repeated. If the sonogram was done after the episode of bleeding and spotting then it sounds like things are going ok so far. Keep your follow up appointments with your Obgyn to help guide you through pregnancy. ...Read more

Heel very painful to put down in morning, with constant calf pain and very painful knee at front severe crunching up and down stairswith not much of swelling, and lower back pain could it all be connected?

Many causes: There could be a problem with the Achilles tendon and calf muscle (gastrocnemius or soleus), or there could be a problem in the lower back, related to to the S1 nerve. When a muscle is bothered, it affected the way you walk and it can cause back pain too. ...Read more
