    Back pain radiating into front lower abdomen

    My lower back is so sore that I cannot stand up straight, and most of the time I can't walk because it hurts so badly. The pain can feel like someone has just stabbed me in the back, and other times it feels like someone is pulling my hips apart. The pain also seems to go around to my abdomin like cramps, almost like I am going to have diarrhea. I have a bladder infection, but I just keep thinking this has to be something worse and can't just be just a backache.

    Because you currently have a bladder infection, I would say that it is highly likely that you have a kidney infection as well. Kidney infections are VERY painful. The pain is felt in the back and abdomen. You should contact your doctor and make sure that you are on the right antibiotic medication. If the pain gets worse and/or you develop a fever, go to the ER.
