Pishu.
Since when are you facing this pain ?
Does it occur intermittently or is it continuous ?
Do you have an experience of an injury in the lower back ?
Did you get it diagnosed by a doctor ?
Please get a X ray done.
Does the pain get better on lying down or does it increase when you lie down ? Answers to all these questions are important so that we can suggest an appropriate cure.

Taro stem and leaves are very high in Calcium oxalate, hence, fear of ' Kidney stones', is it ok to eat this everyday since it brings down Blood Sugar... I am Diabetic and my sugar seems to be coming down, have been eating the stem, leaves and the Root, for all 3 meals everyday for a week now. Is it safe? Will I get kidney stones?
