Hello. Any lower back pain veterans out there that can maybe give me the benefit of your experience with lower back pain? Earlier this year, I tweaked something in my back while trying to catch myself after tripping. I managed not to fall but boy or boy did I wrench something in my back. I've was unable to pinpoint the exact location, as the pain is radiating all along my lower back, but mostly in my right glute. It's very painful to stand after bending over or vise versa. I'v tried foam rolling, stretching, hot showers, ibuprofin, walking, and rest. I seemed to have gotten it under control after a few months, only to re-injure myself while trying to lift something heavy. Fortunately, after about 3 days the pain subsided, but now it's back with a vengeace 2 months later. This time I don't know how I re-injured it. Again, I'm trying all of the usual at home treatments but it seems to no avail this time. I feel if I can identify which muscle is the culprit, I can work on it. But because the pain is deep, I can't locate the offending muscle. Any ideas?
