Iv had lower back pain for 2 weeks. It started in my front were I would imagine my appendices are. I'm male?

Appendix: An infected appendix is unlikely to be the problem, but two weeks is enough time to suffer from pain without a visit to a doctor. Go and have an examination and start recovering from whatever it is. Take care and I hope you feel better soon.

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.

Lower back pain radiating down the front of both thighs but mostly my left front thigh Started after having to set in uncomfortable chair for hours?

Possible stenosis: If these symptoms occur with prolonged standing or walking they are certainly consistent with spinal stenosis. If they are occurring street other possibilities exist there could be a form of neuropathy after your prolonged sitting. I would suggest seeing a neurologist to assess where the pain is coming from
