Lately I've been a little puzzled by something. My family members (who all have bad backs, thank you genetics
) as well as doctors say that lying or sitting in some position should provide some sort of pain relief.
However when I stop moving my pain gets much worse than when I am moving. For example I was grocery shopping today and doing some bending over etc, and I was in pain when I was up walking around. When I sit down or lay down though the pain is much worse, no matter how I sit or lay. It takes about 10-15 minutes for the pain to subside, and it only does as long as Im not moving.
Does this happen to anyone else? I know that some people dont get relief from lying or sitting but I haven't run across anyone yet that has WORSE pain when doing these things. Its like a severe burning, searing pain in my low back and down my legs.
