Stabbing lower back pain

Hi all, would like some reassurance as to whether this is normal please... I have lower back muscle aches often due to working in retail, today when getting into my friends car I fell on to the seat at an angle - a few minutes later I shifted position in my seat and felt a number of sharp stabbing nerve pains around my lower back which radiated around to my lower left abdominal muscles. The pain still comes and goes according to body posture and position now (several hours later) Is it common that this would cause pain in one side of the abdomen? Thanks for reading!

    Its very difficult to say.  But it sounds like it could be an acute muscle strain.   Watch it for the next couple of days, using ice and heat for comfort.  If it gets worse at any time, call your doctor.

    I agree with Ron. I have a cray muscle in my back that lets me know how not to move. If it is nerve pain and does not let up, call your doctor.
    Hang in there and keep us posted on how you are doing.
