Pain in lower back (left hand side).
I've been experiencing internal lower back pain for a little over 3 months now. It appeared to have started after I was working some construction with a friend. But after resting it and working out with it - it doesn't seem to be getting any better at all. It only hurts when I bent over and it is a dull ache with a slight bit of sharp pain. If I could pin point its location, I would have to guess it would be right about where my dimple is on the left side of my lower back.
Any advice? I'm extremely nervous because I am supposed to be leaving for the military in 3 months and this problem has been impeeding my activities. My friend suggested Icing it, then heating it, while using a TENS unit and BioFreeze (spelling on the "tens" and "biofreeze" may be incorrect.. it's similar to icyhot).
Thanks for the help!
