Patient : Hello, I have L-side and Lower back pain now for nearly a month. It radiates in the kidney area and midway up my back and around to my tummy only on the L-side. I have used a heating pad and it does soothe while lying on it, but I still have the pain, and difficulties getting up due to the pain, bending, and sometimes walking and sitting down. I 'm constipated and when I rub my side seems that helps get things going. Can you give me a clue to what might be going on.
