Help please I am 38
I have a lot of back pain it started when i was 35 I was moving a lot of snow from my car and felt some thing in my upper back go and from time to time get pain and stiffness in my upper back. Any way I have noticed my back getting pain while sitting down form some time then over the past year I find it very painful to sit down and my lower back is giving me a lot of pain. The pain I am getting seems to come from just above my hip and lower back. The pain does affect my stomach and seems to travel to my chest some times. I also get pain which seems to travel down my legs some time.
I have been to see my doctor a few times had an ex-ray which showed every thing normal and he feels exercises to strengthen my back will help. I do not feel this will do any thing I have been doing exercises for a few days but don't think its working. I did see a physiotherapist and she said my upper back seemed to have more muscle mass on my left side advised I use a spiky ball. I just seem to be getting pain when I sit down I got a new job driving a bus and its been hard physically doing the training is their any advice any one can give me as I don't think this is normal. Until I reached 35 I have never had any back problems the only other pain I have had is pain in my neck but the pain feels like its coming from my neck.
I seem to get pain when I lie down.
Can any one say what is wrong with me?
