Backache for last 7 days
Hi, I am first time having backache for last 7 days. Pain is decreasing but still there. It is in lower back on the left side. I did not fall or anything. I probably gave it a small jerk when I was in a rush. Because of this I am also having some pain in my left hip & thigh. What should I do?
