At the end of my Basketball season last year I started to get pain in my lower back. It consisted for a long time, sometimes I would barely feel the pain other times it hurt pretty bad. For the last week or so the pains have been worse than ever. I am 16 years old, 6 feet 4 inches and I am fairly skinny. I play golf a lot. I have recently just signed up for a WFCT tournament in Rhode Island this weekend which cost nearly $1000 and I may have to withdraw from it if my back doesn't get better(They don't give refunds if you don't show up). My families insurance is being switched so my parents said I can't go see a doctor for a while until we can get coverage. They think it is just my back muscles and I just need to stretch, but it feels like some kind of bone problem, maybe inflammation? The pain is mostly in the lower right half of my back, but in the past I have felt it on the left side too. I am actually staying home from school today because my back hurts so bad. I can barely walk, especially not with a backpack on. I can't bend over to pick anything up on the ground. Even getting up from a chair and sitting down hurts extremely bad. I need help.
