Vash asked:

About a year ago, my lower left back began hurting. I discovered that it was a pulled muscle by twisting rapidly during sports practice. I rested it for a while, and started exercising it to strengthen it. Now, 3 weeks ago, my right lower back began to hurt. I’ve used hot/cold treatments, and I take advil/motrin. (By the way, which is better?) I’ve stretched it and rested it for a while, but the pain and tightness still persists. Any ideas?

I’ve had lower back pain for quite some time now. I am female, 5’8. I am not over weight, I have never had an epidural. Sometimes my back pain is so unbearable. I don’t have medical insurance, so I don’t want to waste my money if there isn’t much they can do.
Have you ever experienced severe lower back pain? Could I have a slipped disc, or a pinched nerve???
