Hi Kari!

And welcome to the forum! I'm sorry you're having such miserable pains, especially at your age. Is it possible you have a kidney infection? That will give you lower back pain but so will other things.

Can you get in to see a doctor? Can parents take you? If not there are lots of other options you have to get medical care even if you want to do it on your own. All states in the US have health departments that will see you. You can also call any hospital in your area and ask where you can be seen.

Please don't ignore this pain. Pain is your body's way of telling you that something needs to be taken care of. It's possible it's simple like a bladder or kidney infection and a round of antibiotics will take care of it. If you want to talk feel free to email me, OK? Click on the little envelope under my name... <--- over there and that will bring up an email window.

I agree with Chutz. It is very important to see a doctor when you have pain, especially when it is unexplained. Sometimes pain can be a sign of something easily fixed.

Good luck to you!
