Okay so I've always had this pain. I have been reading a lot about the different types of bones and ligaments in the human body, especially the back. But I'm still unsure where this pain is coming from or from what bone or ligament, to be exact.. It's in the lower part of my back in the left side. I have always had this pain when ever I stand for too long or when walking long distances. Everytime I take a shower, the pain is ever so present, but it goes away after an hour or two. Today, however, I showered quicker than usual and it struck the worst! I've had this pain now for more than four hours and that has never happened before. I haven't done any kind of excessive exercise nor do I exercise daily but I'm in moderate shape for my age. Now every time I walk I can feel pain there. It's as if I feel a bone or ligament move in discomfort. I am now lying down in bed, 6:00 AM in the morning, without being able to sleep because with every little movement I do, the pain becomes present. I put on a Lidocaine patch but it did absolutely nothing. The pain is extreme and almost unbearable when I do the hula hoop motion with my hips. What could this be? Anything would be helpful.
