I have chronic back pain – gotten worse over the past few months?
What could chronic lower back pain be caused by? It’s gotten worse over the past few months, standing is starting to hurt and it’s a sharp pain. Lifting, bending and laying flat also are extremely painful
Chronic Low back pain may be caused by Muscle spasm,lumbar spondylosis(arthritis) lumber disc lesion…any other physical injuries…
in order to make sure what is it..u have to go for an xray initially then MRi if nothing showed up in xray..
generally start with doing hot packs,daily 20 minutes on the back,avoid bad posture and soft mattresses, avoid bending and carrying objects..and you can do some stretching (mild) like knee to chest exercise…
U seem to be suffering from lumbar prolapsed interverterbral disc that may be causing the nerve roots of the legs to be compressed. This may cause severe pain in any posture.
Get mri lumbosacral spine done to find the exact diagnosis.
