Lower back and side pain
mltt_knnth posted:
Very active , walk 8 k a day , swim a little, Bol, skating . In the last two days have felt a very unnerving set of pains with no other symptoms. Just today jump out of a bus, not moving, and when. Hit left foot first I felt a ver sharp pain along my left back, hip and butt and just could not mov for about two minutes may less. At times since fell it is lose to firing again but nothing like the first time? I did save a regular skating type fall from a really awkward position? Wondering what it might be, maybe swollen. Disc or what? I am overseas and not currently with chronic pain ! Ken

You need to see your doctor for evaluation and treatment.

I pray you can get answers and relief soon.
