For years I have had major lower back pain. When I get out of my truck or get out of a chair after sitting for only 10 minutes I am in major pain and my back is so stiff that I am folded over like a question mark. After about 10 minutes I can walk around normally, until I sit down, then it starts all over again. My NP says its just normal old age how come everyone else isn't walking around like this? I am only 49 and I have this problem for 10 years and its getting worse. My mother is 83 and she looks like a ? the whole time she is on her feet. I know a person can be misdiagnosed I was for years and years with my dizziness and balance problems until I found a neuro surgeon that just rattled off my symptoms to me like he was living in my body.Please help.
