My mom has had a constant pain in the bottom right side of her back ever since she had a field service job (where she drove a lot) about 20 years ago. Driving and sitting for long periods of time make it worse. Has anyone had this or know what it could be?

shelby. asked:

I’ve had a few other symptoms that I have asked about. But, I woke up with slight cramping. For a few days I’ve been having lower back pain. Like the kind you get on your period. The strange thing is I’m not expecting my period until the 26th.
