In brief: U can go to

An urgent care which is more economical than going to er. I suspect muscle strain causing your lower back, and your left lower abdominal pain could be from inflammation of your intestine, fallopian tube, ovarian cyst, infection of your ureter, a sign of stone in the urinary tract etc.
Only your dr can give u an accurate diagnosis. Take care and god bless u!http://www.M.Webmd.Com/pain-management/g.

In brief: Multiple reasons

If it has been going on for 4 weeks, gkto yourdoc, not er. Symptoms suggest multiple possibilities: left lower lobe pneumonia, ruptured ovarian cyst, kidney disease.
Yourdoc should be able to determine course of action based on an exam and some labs. Pending on your relationship with your primary care doc, you might want to get pelvic exam first.
