Hi All: Yesterday I developed a strange lower back pain. It feels a little like I pulled something, as it's hard to bend over forwards or backwards. It feels a little like something female, although I just finished my cycle last week. And it could be digestive. Monday and yesterday I was pretty ill and couldn't keep anything down. Today I don't have a huge appetite but the nausea is gone. I took it easy so far today, sitting or lying with pillows under my knees while working on a laptop. There's tenderness on either side of the lower back, just between spine and my sides. It feels better now than this morning, at least I'm not walking bent over. Has anyone else had this strange pain? I'm not someone who usually has any aches, and I couldn't be pregnant. I'm wondering if it's an early sign of menopause or if I should get the heck to the doctor. Any ideas?
