Hi when I take a deep breathe I feel a sharp pain in my lower left back, it comes and goes, I was in the garden sweeping and collecting leaves etc

Some position or movement you make a lt or one that was a bad one may have caused it. A massage may help - or PT - yoga - expert gym trainer. Best! ...Read more

Hello, I have just recently, this past week, noticed blood/pain, after I urinate, dribble out, frequent urinating, and a pain in my lower left back?

Tests needed: You need to have a CT scan with contrast of the abdomen and pelvis. If that does not explain the blood in the urine and the left sided back pain then you would need cystoscopy. At your young age it is probably not serious but do not ignore it. See a urologist. Good luck. ...Read more

Hi! I am having severe pain in my lower left back. It will not go away no matter how I position myself. I am 38 weeks pregnant. What should I do?
