I have been having lower back pain. Not so much where my spine is but feels as if it is at the tips of my rear hips bones. Today I woke up and it hurt really bad . Enough that it is very distracting. It does get better through out the day but always returns the next morning. It also hurts really bad if I have to stoop or work bent over. It has begun to hurt while playing standing. I go for long walks every day and it is uncomfortable . I don't feel it is a "disc" but don't know what to do. I went to the doctor and he wanted me to do physical therapy. I have been doing exercises but it is not getting better , it is getting worse. The doctor seems to not want to go to extremes to figure it out. It started when I was sitting on a bench ,my dad had just repaired it, and was so relaxed i could have fallen asleep in it. Then , Crack!!!!!!!!!, it split in half and I fell back , hit my head on the brick of my house and ended up twisted up like a pretzel. I fear back surgery . Anyone have any experience or advice. MRI ect.... This is really starting to affect me in a negative way.
