Had an intense back ache with pain for just under three months. It started off as a general ache and then got worse and spread to the middle of my back. It also travels down my buttocks (normally one side). I also get pain in my knees that is horrible in the morning and heel pain that hurts to walk on and is again worse in the morning. I sometimes get pain around my hips. I am currently taking tramadol which helps. The pain is worse in the morning and improves with light excerise. I also find myself waking up most nights because my back and knees are sore and my back feels stiff. I had an MRI after my specialist nurse ( who I see for my Crohn's disease ) thought that I might have Ankylosing spondylitis. My MRI has come back normal and the drs have told me that they think my it is muscular. Bit confused now. Not sure how muscular back pain would cause joint pain in my knees
