      I was running at track practice on friday 2 weeks ago and i felt it... didn’t think it was a big deal so i just ignored it and kept running i kept going to track practice last week and it hurt, but i could still run. I tried running on Monday and it just hurt way too much. The pain has traveled down my butt and kind of on my leg.

    I don't know if it is an option for you, but lying in a hot spring has always done amazing things for aches and pains for me! If you don't have one anywhere, a hot tub or even a hot bath would probably help. It's the mineral water in natural springs that really helps though. That would be my recommendation. Read this article for more info!

    Sounds like a pinched nerve and possibly sciatica....pain over your butt and down your leg...typical. Take anti-inflammatory pain killers like Ibuprofen. and keep moving.  It should gradually get better.   

    I used to get this all the time and was given a back exercise to help prevent it coming back....I have found this quite good.

    Lay flat on your back on the floor and try to relax and go limp....hold this for 1 minute. Then slowly draw your knees up to your chest and hold for 1 minute. Slowly put them back down,but keep your knees bent and feet flat on the floor.  Try to do this several times daily but always relax first,do the moves slowly and stop if you experience any sharp or shooting pains.  Get up slowly.

    Back pain is frustrating but it usually passes.

    Isabel if you are only 15 your bones and muscles are still growing and adapting,believe it or not,so dont do any activity which gives you a lot of pain but do keep moving and taking Ibuprofen.   You can do the exercise now and any time you like but only do it very slowly and stop immediately if you feel any sort of pain.

    Taking Ibuprofen will help to stop your back going into spasm,which is very painful and you will feel you have become rigid and unable to move.
