Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello, my name is Dr. Uzair and I shall be assisting you today.
Do you have any other symptoms like diarrhea, constipation, burning in urine or difficulty passing urine?
Is there any bruising or swelling on the right hand side of your back?
Alright, thank you.
In the absence of any other symptoms and because the pain is aggravated on movement, this seems like a muscle strain/cramp. I will suggest that you keep the area warm and sleep with a hot water bottle placed adjacent to it at night (no direct contact) and start on an anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen 400mg thrice a day. You can also massage the area using olive oil or a gel like icy cool gel thrice a day.
My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5-star rating today.

Thank you for your response.
Bloating does not relate to lower back pain.
Rib fractures present with excruciating pain along with bruising and swelling in the area. We can rule that out since you mentioned not having brusing or swelling.
Bloating can be caused by many things ranging from anxiety to something you ate.
A cramp in the muscle seems to be unrelated to it.
Please let me know if you have followup questions.
