Hello and welcome to E health forum.

The location of the pain and the severity could either be due to a back sprain or due to a kidney stone.

She might have to see a doctor for a proper diagnosis and investigations including CT scan might be helpful.

In the mean time, adequate bed rest, ice packs and analgesic creams application to the affected area might be helpful.

I hope this helps.
