Over last 5 days have had lower back, right hip pain with some abdominal cramping. Not continuous and ice and tylenol (acetaminophen) seem to help.?
See Doctor. First try nsaids like ibuprofen, aleve and you can even add some tylenol (acetaminophen) to help with pain. Ice the area for 20 min at a time and see if these help reduce the pain. If this persists longer than a few days, consider seeing your doctor for stronger medications to help. Typically most people get better within a few weeks of an injury. If not better consider further imaging studies to evaluate.
Sounds like sciatica. Common symptoms of sciatica include: Pain in the rear or leg that is worse when sitting. Burning or tingling down the leg. Weakness, numbness, or difficulty moving the leg or foot. A constant pain on one side of the rear. A shooting pain that makes it difficult to stand up. Sciatica usually affects only one side of the lower body. The pain extends from the lower back all the way to the leg.
Kidney stone? The abdominal cramping is less typical of a muscular back strain. If you have had any change in urinary symptoms such as frequency, burning or darkening of urine, you might consider possibility of a small kidney stone. However an ovarian or intestinal (appendix) problem could also manifest in the manner you are describing. If it persists or worsens seek medical evaluation. .
