Low back pain like im on my menstrual period?what could it be?do i have pinched nerve?is it fatal?

multiple reasons

Menstrual
pinched nerve, compressed vertebra, ruptured ovarian cyst, kidney stone, gallstones, diverticulosis, etc. There are so many possibilities that you need to be seen by your primary care doctor to begin to sort out what it might be. This sooner you seek medical attention, the sooner you will get your answer and won't have to worry about it being fatal

I'm 4 weeks pregnant and I have lower back pain that is EXACTLY the same as when I get low back pain from a menstrual period. Is it miscarriage ?

Pregnancy/back pain

Back pain is common with pregnancy. There is a rapid and significant change in hormones in the first trimester that can lead to changes in the tension or laxity of the muscles and tendons of the pelvis. Check with your obstetrician for reassurance that you are not having a miscarriage.

Dr. Andrew L. Doe answered:

Why am I experiencing lower back pain 2 days after my menstrual cycle? My period was also lighter than normal. And started of as a dark brown flow

Referred pain

Heart
At your age, and from your symptoms, the pain is probably related to your period. The body refers the pain from an internal organ to the musculoskeletal system. Just like when a heart attack victim has arm or jaw pain. If it persists, talk to your OB/GYN.

Pain
With a history of endometriosis, unfortunately, this scenario can be normal. A lot of women wtih endo suffer from irregular periods and pain as you describe it. Often a gynecologist will prescribe birth control as a first line therapy for women with endo. It can help regulate periods as well as diminish pain. Other options for pain are NSAID such as ibuprofen during pre-menstrual and menstrual

Dr. John J. Fung answered:

I am2 months late with my period and my breasts hurt very badly and bad stoach pain and very bad back pain help?

C gynecologist ASAP

Pain
You may be pregnant but without being able to gauge how much pain you are in, one would be concerned about the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy, meaning that the pregnancy is not in the uterus or womb. These ectopic pregnancies can be very dangerous and should be evaluated by a gynecologist ASAP. However, if the pain worsens, go to the Emergency Room immediately.

I'm 38 weeks pregnant. Lost mucus plug and having back pain on my left side. No contractions but legs hurt like if I were on my period. Labor?

Could be..

Often women having back pain or "cramping" are actually having contractions and they just don't realize it. If it continues for over an hour, you should go in and get evaluated.
