Focal Spine Pain, Lower Back, Left Side...

Newcomer here. 28 year old male. Need some knowledge if possible. Have appt. Already scheduled.

I lift weights and work out frequently, so lower back pain is nothing new to me. Typically the pain I endure goes away a few days after a back workout and all is well.

However - over the past 5-6 days I have a new pain that is worrisome. Left side only of spine roughly 6 inches up from my tail bone is experiencing great deal of pain across 2-3 vertebrae. Majority of pain is tightness mixed with sharp pain to the touch. Movement from side to side produces no pain, but moving spine forward and back is slight pain with tightness. Worst pain comes in the morning (right out of bed) and is aggravated by lifting something without directly engaging lower back - i.e. this morning experienced intense pain taking wet laundry out of washer and moving to dryer. Only right arm was used to do this. Did not stoop or lean.

I sit all day long at a desk (8.5 hrs/day) and just before this new issue changed up my shoulder/back workout routine. Worried now, however about spinal cancer.

Any thoughts?? Thanks in advance.


It would be very helpful if you could provide us with more details. Here are some questions that you
should answer:

  • - When did this first start?
    - Was it the result of an accident or trauma?
    - What doctors have you seen?
    - What Conservative treatments have you had? Which ones?
    - What diagnostic tests have you had? And their results
    - What medications are you currently using?
    - Has surgery been discussed as an option?
    - What is your doctor’s action plan for treating you?

Providing answers to questions like this will give the member community here a better understanding
of your situation and make it easier to respond.
