I have a lot of lower back pain. I notice it mainly when I have to walk any distance. But I also notice it when I do laundry (bending over), sitting on the floor, and walk my dogs. It basically starts very low, then radiates to my sides. The other day my tailbone also hurt. I seem to be fine after an hour or so of inactivity. I am to the point where it takes me over an hour to wash dishes (we are talking maybe 5 dishes). I have to take a break all the time. I am 30 years old and shouldn't feel like this. I have had x-rays done, but only of my middle & upper back. My middle back used to cause me some pain, but nothing like this. My doctor has told me to exercise & walk to make it better. But that only makes it worse. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas what could be causing this?

Thanks,
jenna

  • Problem here is, they never do anything about back pain as really you can't do anything other than what he has said, exercise to strengthen your back. Also, when your sat around make sure you keep your back as straight as you can with a good support chair.

  • Wish I could offer answers. But I'm sitting here (sitting up as straight as I can, supposed to be working) feeling my back starting to lock up again. THis is a cycle it seems but the thing that is really bumming me out is that I really DID THE STRETCHING this time. And it is still coming back. Maybe I'm just getting old and that's the answer. I'm the old guy w/ the bad back.Oh well.Hi,There are several diagnostic possibilities. I strongly recommend seeing a physiotherapist for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Hope that helps and good luck,PhysioAdvisor
