Many thanks for posting on ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the back pain that you are having. The pain of gallstones is usually not felt in the back and the pain you are having in the back could likely be due to the kidney infection. In fact, a possibility of the stones in the kidneys needs to be ruled out as they can be a culprit in causing the chest pain. The test for the same is an USG of the kidneys. The other possibility is a lumbar spine disease like lumbar spondylitis and for the same an MRI of the spine is the best. In fact, strain of the muscles of the lower back can also cause the low back ache but this usually goes away with the use of the painkillers/muscle relaxants. Please do consult a surgeon/orthopaedics person for the same.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
