  • Kidney stones. They totally suck. I've had them, and that's how it felt - like someone was knifing me in the back.

  • If it still hurts tomorrow just as much, I'd get it checked out. Rule out kidney or kidney stones. It could be arthritis in the area, or muscle spasm among other things.

  • is it your very lower back, just above your butty and to the side of your spine? Does it feel like you need to pop it or have it massaged for days? If it does then my guess is a kidney infection so I would held to your doctor. And I am not one of those people on here who freak out and tell you to call the doc

  • Check you temperature as well, with kidney infection/kidney stones also comes fever, so that might be another clue as to what is happening. Get yourself lots of fluids in the meantime.
