Hey all, I've been having lower back pain for about 6 months now. It is constant. I am 27 years old. I have been to an orthapedic surgeon had x-rays, mri, ct scan. He says there is nothing wrong there. Only a slight disc wear. He said it was normal for my age. He said I would have to learn to live with a certain amount of pain. That's not o.k. with me and the pain seems to be a lot in my lower back muscles. I stretch a lot and that brings some relief kind of. But over all it hurts all the time. I constantly pop my spine, as it feels like I constantly need to. I have been to physical therapy for 2 1/2 months and it didn't really help anything. I use to do a lot of powerlifting when I was a teenager, but the doctor says everything looks o.k.. I have been doing core strength exercises to increase stablility. I sit a lot at work and that doesn't help anything. I sleep as recommended, on my side pillow between knees legs bent. This doesn't really help either. I drink plenty of water. Any suggestions?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
