Sharp pain in the lower right side in the middle close to back basically is my back above the hip by two inches any idea?

If it hurts when: You are walking the most likely thing in the absence of fever would be sacroiliitis, inflammation of the sacroiliac joint.

If you are walking and you feel like the pain is shooting down the back of your leg then I would suspect you were suffering from sciatica. Most likely however you have pulled a muscle. If it continues then see your family doctor. Best wishes. Oh, and if it gets the point where it feels like you're delivering a baby, then it's a kidney stone. ...Read more
