Disease or injuries in muscle, bones or the nerves in your spine.

Disorders in the abdominal area, such as appendicitis, kidney and bladder infections, tumours and pelvic infections may also cause severe low back pain.

Nerve root impingement, as seen in sciatica, and bulging of the disc between bones in the lower spine can also cause sharp and lingering pain.
