    My dad is sick and has been having severe lower back pain when he coughs. It started with his feet being wet and cold, then his feet turned white. After that (even when his feet were back to normal) the pain went into his back. He's got a nasty cough and he said it hurts where his kidneys are--the lower back. He's been sleeping for two days and says it feels like he's passing out when he coughs. Does anyone have any answers?

    Please have your dad's condition looked at by a physician as soon as possible, because these symptoms are worrying. The cough alone is enough to be taken quite seriously, not to mention the pain and feet issue. Your dad may have pneumonia, a kidney infection, or any one of a number of other serious conditions. Please seek treatment immediately, and let us know what the doctor says. Good luck!
