Back Pain
I have a pain only on the left side of my lower back. I feel it more when sneezing, laughing basically everytime I move a muscle. I thought it was PMS but it's been 3 weeks and my period has come and gone. But the pain remains.
What could it be

Dear chilegal
You could have a muscle spasm in the area. Try using a hot water bottle and anti-inflammatories. Also just let your doctor check and see that your urine is clear and that you don't have kidney infection.
