Lower Back Pain+fever+vomiting+headache

My mother has been having lower back pain for the past two months, but two days ago she had severe pain in the lower back region. That night she had a fever and severe headache, and the following day she vomited and couldn't consume much food. Does anyone know what might cause this? What kind of doctor should be consulted?

Answer

Your mother sounds like she is experiencing a lot of pain. Fever in combination with nausea and vomiting can indicate something quite serious including appendicitis. I suggest that you call your local hospital, describe your mother's symptoms, and ask their advice. Good luck!
