What can cause lower back pain that radiates to my left side? It sometimes hurts all the way around my pelvic area. I have had kidney stones before.
Non-spine low back. Low back pain is very common, and can arise from back and other problems.

What originally started as right side pain and tenderness seemed to turn into whole lower back pain below hips. Was given an taragol. Kidney stones??
Maybe. A number of disorders can give the type of pain you describe or part of it: kidney stones, acute appendicitis, neuralgia (pain due to nerve irritation or inflammation) and others. Each cause has its own characteristics; get it checked soon!
Not always easy. Kidney stone pain is generally unaffected by movement. Patients often bend and twist trying to get relief. Pain often radiates down into groin and may change in nature as the stone moves. Low back pain tends to be associated with an inciting event, tends to change with position and is often relieved by rest. Sometimes radiates to buttock or leg and may be felt across entire back.
Movement. I agree with my colleague above. Also kidney stone patients move restlessly trying to find a comfortable position & frequently have nausea/vomiting. Back pain patients try hard not to move, and nausea is rarely present. Kidney stones can produce blood in urine, while back pain can't.

Clarification. Need urine analysis to determine whether kidney stone actively contributing to his pain.
