Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Most likely, your backache could be due to renal stones.

Pain that originates due to renal issues (Stones, infection) is usually episodic , spasmodic or colicky in ‎nature, ‎‎‎‎‎originating ‎in the flank and radiating to the lower belly, inner thigh. It is ‎associated with other ‎‎‎‎symptoms like ‎nausea, vomiting ‎and systemic features due to any infection.

The exact cause of your symptoms need to be ruled out with a ultrasound or a CT scan of the abdomen. The ‎results of a Urinalysis, might also give a clue to the probable cause.

You might consult with your doctor for a examination and proper therapeutic advice. ‎
