Lower back pain

I have been having a problem with lower back pain recently. I thought maybe I pulled something, but it hasn't gotten better in 6 weeks. I went to the doctor yesterday. He suggested taking 2 Aleve twice a day, and he gave me a printout of some exercises designed to stretch the back. Some of them are easy. Two of them are not so easy. One I can do, but hurts really bad, is to lie on my back with my knees up, straighten one leg against the floor, then lift it up (keeping it straight). I can almost get it perpendicular to the floor, but it hurts. The other is a reverse push up. Sit up with your hands on the floor behind you, and push your pelvis up. I can't even do that one. My goal in one month is to be able to touch my toes without pain. If not, I have to go back and start some tests to see if it is something to do with my kidney. My doctor doesn't think it does. The pain is to the right of my spine, but to the left of my kidney. I forget what he called it. He asked if I had numbness in my right leg. I told him no, but that when the pain is really bad, I can feel it go down my right leg. It stops right before it gets to the back of my knee. Anyway, just sharing my story. I'm going to go try those exercises again.

How is your bed? Is it comfortable? Is the matress a good one?

I used to have killer back pain and it turned out my bed sucked. I went out and spent the $$ on a temperpedic bed. Lots of cash but oh so worth it. My lower back problems have pretty much dissappeared.

You would be amazed what a difference a good bed can make.

They say pain is sometimes the result of trying to over compensate for some other pain.

Maybe it's time to invest in some knee pads.

You're just not used to having your leg(s) straight when you've got your feet in the air.

My bed is really comfy. Of course, it's really old too. Probably is time for a new matress. I'll have to look into that.

Depends on what I'm trying to do. To sit here and tighten my stomach muscles, I'm fine. But when I do the second exercise I mentioned....no way, my back just gives out.

The comfort air mattresses are good for back problems as are some of the higher dollar latex mattresses. We bought a Sealy a couple of years ago and my wife claims to sleep better than she ever has.

If you go looking for a replacement remember that if you are saving money you are also (sometimes) sacrificing quality.

Have you tried a Chiropractor? They are usually very good with spinal alignment. I've had adjustments done from time to time and it works, but I don't buy into all of the stuff about curing the common cold with a pop of the thumb.

imo you need to figure out exactly what hurts and how

you know the basic exercises?

do crunches, single leg lift,double leg lift,side leg lift,superman


you should be able to find a pattern which allows you locate the specific area of pain.

that should give you a good indication about whether it's muscle,bone,stomach,side or back.



then i go see another doctor with that information

It really doesn't sound the same but I used to have lower back issues that were entirely due to stress. It is part of the fight or flight reflex. When you are stressed, your lower back muscles tense to get ready to hold you upright while you run from the stressful situation. Whenever I noticed my back starting to hurt, I learned to slow down, take a deep breath and concentrate on relaxing those muscles. Didn't take long for me to learn these techniques and got to where I did them without thinking about it.

Anway, back pain is no fun. Good luck and hope it is nothing terribly serious.

I know you don't want to hear this, but I've lost about 60lbs now and my back has never felt better. My knees are still f**ked but the holes in the miniscus and all the scar tissue might have something to do with that.

I thought about going to a chiropractor, but I wanted to see what my doctor had to say about it first. If it doesn't get any better this month, then I'm going to ask him if he thinks a chiropractor might be able to help.

If the pain is going down your leg it's probably one of your disc's. Get a MRI and you will know what's wrong.
