Our expert says:
From your short description, I think that you have mechanical back pain, due to irritation of the nerves that route out of the lower lumbar vertebrae. You had a scan done which apparently does not show anything. You describe abdominal pain associated with lower back pain, where I think the only explanation can be problems with your kidneys. I therefore, suggest that you consult a urologist for an opinion and to have an ultrasound of your kidneys done.
I also suggest that you get a second opinion from an orthropaedic surgeon to evaluate your lower back.
Please provide me with feedback.
