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?
