I'm new here, I'm only 17 years old and I've been dealing with some lower back issues which has affected my life in a very negative way. I got a really long story but I don't want to make it too long so I'll sum it up real quick. Basically got depressed for the first time in my life because of my lower back (taking ssri's currently), quit school and quit my job at KFC because of my lower back.
I've visited a physical therapist for about 8 months with no positive results and visited a chiropractor for 2 months with no positive results. After begging my doctor for MRI's for 6 months long he finally decided to make a appointment for me to see a orthopedic doctor but this is gonna take 3 weeks and in the mean time I've found this site and was hoping someone could help me.
I'm gonna try to explain my pain as best as possible. Whenever I bend over I feel alot of pain in the lowest portion of my lower back (right above the buttcheeks, somewhere around the sacrum), If I flex my lower back I get the exact same pain above the buttcheeks. Even the most little motion of bending forward I get a terrifying pain in that location like brushing my teeth and bending forward to the sink. My PT thought it was my right SI joint he has tried to mobilize for a long time but it didn't help like at all. And he didn't know what my lower back problem was and didn't want to give me any further treatment. If anybody could give me some insight on my lower back issue I would be really grateful. My life is unbearable I can't do anything I want to and I'm only 17 years old, sorry If I explained it bad or missed some points EDITED if you have any questions I need to answer to diagnose me correctly feel free to ask.http://www.spine-health.com/forum/forum-rules
