Lower back pain on my right side
m713317 posted:
I am experiencing lower back discomfort for the last couple of months. Do you know what's the cause of this?

Have you seen a doctor about this? They may require an x ray or an MRI to see if there's anything wrong with your back. I'm sorry you're going through this as I deal with lower back pain and other pain every day I know how much it hurts.
I'd see a doctor about it, if you could. It could be just pulled muscles or something.
You could try a heating pad on your lower back. If you don't have a heating pad, a hot towel, as hot as you can stand it, might help a little bit....
Hope it gets better for you!
