hello, today while I was at work i started noticing these slight mildly painful jolts in my lower back. the pain occurred on the left side half way between my hips and my ribs.that happened around 7:30 pm and lasted until about 8:20. now the jolts are gone but I noticed that both sides (not just the left) are tender in one certain area on each side. could this be an issue with my kidneys?

hi and welcome to the support group -

we mainly deal with issues involving the spine - so I don't think we could really assist you.

the only thing that we can offer is for you to make an appointment with your primary care physician and have him/her check this out - your physician can run some tests etc., and let you know what it is - depending on the outcome of the tests will depend on what type of professional doctor you would need to see.

hope this helps - take care - Joy
