Been happening since this morning. On and off all day. Not linked to movement, can bend etc fine. Can be sat still on a chair and still get this Sharp stabbing pain on the right hand side lower back/just above bum cheek/hip level. Regular twinges not constant but annoying and painful.
Any ideas what it could be?

Seemed to almost stop for an hour now back to regular twinges.

Does the pain go down the back of your leg at all or is it just in the one place?

Sorry OP, I'm absolutely shattered ATM and I'm literally dropping off at the computer, so I'm off to bed, but I will be back tomorrow at some point in the morning.

Take care until then OP.

Just in one place.

Ok, thank you.

Would you describe it as almost a burning type of pain? And does it last just a few seconds each time?

Perhaps your sacro iliac joint is playing up. Maybe try hot pack or icepack?

Last a few seconds but more of a Sharp stabbing pain.

Does it hurt when you move?

Does pressure relieve it or make it worse?

Could be kidney related. Have you had a UTI recently and/or do you feel generally unwell? Are your lips dry? (Sign of dehydration = not drinking enough.)

Well, what ever it was had stopped overnight! Maybe trapped nerve. Thanks for replies.

Hi OP, how are you doing? Has your pain disappeared or has it come back at all?

No more pains. Thanks for asking.
