    Many nerves occur in the lower back area and lower back pain can be caused by quite a few conditions. Most cases of lower back pain are caused by some sort of injury to that area but problems in the gastrointestinal system can cause pain in that area as well. Any problem that causes a large amount of unexplained pain - such as you're experiencing - that is not going away, really calls for a trip to the doctor. Good luck!

      Thank you so much Cort for your help. I tried some Ginger Ale to help me burp and some Pepto (which moved gas). The pain has subsided some but is not completely gone. I am able to rest more comfortably than before, but decided to give it another day or so before going to see a doctor. Once again, thank you so much for your help. :-}
