Recently I have been diagnosed with H.D l5-s1 .
Did a CT.
I am sure this problem has been with me for a very long time but I don't know when I have damaged my spine.
Now I am 18 years old but I remember of having discomfort on the back for at least 7 years.
Now it is kind of worse because I haven't been in a lot of activity and I have spent a lot of time sitting or lying because of some important exams. So different from before when it hurt when I stood in a bad position while washing my head for example or watching TV now it hurts for no reason .
The pain isn't to strong it is more of a discomfort than pain.
Also I don't use any pain medication .
So what do you think will running make it worse or not.
I have usually felt that in days I stay up without sitting doing different activities the back didn't hurt so will it be the same running ,what do you think because I still haven't tried.
I haven't been running for more than 1 year so I would really like to do that but will my back allow me to or should I forget about it and find something else like swimming.
