I've found the worse sudden pain in my lower back is standing brushing my teeth and bending slightly to rinse at no more than a 30 degree bend. I have horrible pain standing if only for a minute and can't walk far and find only relief with laying down and some sitting for a while. My partial EMG showed peroneal sciatic nerve compression. I'll have to remember this to tell the Orthosurgeon when I see him. Anyone have the same thing?
