I'm 20 years old and I'm having SEVERE back pain. It's been going on for about 3 months. I don't have insurance so I can't see a doctor right now. Don't have the insurance or money to do so. It started waking up one morning and it wasn't as severe. I didn't fall or do anything out of the ordinary that I think would do anything to my back. It's mostly in the middle of my back. and wraps around my back rib cage. Now, it has spread to my lumbar/lower back and into both sides of my hips. I've literally tried everything. I've changed the way I've slept (pillow between legs, flipped mattess, sleeping with one pillow instead of two), taking ibuprofen, stretching, exercise, massage, icyhot. Nothing has helped. It starts during the night and when I wake up i can barely move my back. Taking a deep breath HURTS. Feels like there is a ton of tension in my back. I haven't gone to the chiropractor bcz thinking of anyone doing anything to my back makes me hurt. The massage made me feel even more worse the next day. I can't sit for long either bcz my tailbone starts hurting. Like I've bruised it or something but my back pain was first then a month or two after the tailbone pain started happening. Once I get off of it for sitting down it feels numb like a warm tingly sensation. The pain used to stop after about 15 minutes of being out of the bed from waking up and moving around and it was fine. Now my back pain radiates throughout the day. I need help! Anything would help! I'm feel hopeless against this pain. Please help..
