i'm having severe, severe lower back pain. it hurts to sit, stand, walk, drive. there are only 2 positions where they don't hurt, and they're yoga positions. stretching my back doesn't make it feel any better, just alleviates the pain... momentarily. i'm unable to sleep from the pain. moving around during the night hurts also. i thought it might be kidney related but one side doesn't hurt more than the other. i'm a female and not cramping or on my period. i've had these symptoms for 3-4 days now and i work 60 hours a week so my only option would be an ER or minor ER center which i'd like to avoid if at all possible.
