Welcome to e health forum.

It is difficult to make a diagnosis without a complete medical history and physical examination.

Lower back or flank pain is a physical illness related to nerves, muscle, bone and abdominal-pelvic organ. The common causes (considering your age) include:

- Nerve root syndromes - these produce symptoms of nerve impingement (a nerve is directly irritated): Herniated discs, Spondylosis and Spinal disc degeneration

- Musculoskeletal pain syndromes like myofascial pain syndromes and fibromyalgia.

- Infections of the bones: Bacterial and spinal Tuberculosis

- Noninfectious inflammation of the spine (spondylitis) can cause stiffness and pain in the spine that is particularly worse in the morning

- Renal stone, stress, anxiety, depression and somatoform disorders.

The exact cause can be determined only with proper medical evaluation and hence it would be recommended to consult your doctor for proper help.
