So I'm 22 and I've been suffering from really bad back pain for approximately the last 4 months. The first couple months it wasn't so bad. Just thought it was a muscle strain as I lift up to 60 lbs. cases at my job. So I figured give it some time and it would heal, but it hasn't. It's mainly towards my very lower back and the lower left hand side of my back. If I stand too long without all our stretching, and I bend over, it feels like someone is repeatedly stabbing me in the back and I have to wait a minute to even be able to stand back up straight. If I lay on my stomach for 20 minutes or longer, I actually have to have my boyfriend help me get up because my back is so beyond cramped. And just an every day thing. I barely bend over, my back feels like it a cracking a thousand times just to do that one move. I went to a doctor about two months ago and he performed some scans and he said there was nothing there. No tears or anything involving my discs. But since it's gotten a lot worst I'm concerned that maybe he missed something?? I'm just wondering if anyone else has had pain like this before and if you did, what was the diagnosis? I'm worried if I go to another doctor that they are just going to tell me the same thing and I'll be stuck just using bengay everyday and hoping for the best.
