We got so much help from this forum when my husband was undergoing a back fusion. Now I guess it is my turn. I am experiencing pain midway between my lower spine and the top outside of hip. When I press on a point midway it is tender. No injuries that I know of. I know this forum does not diagnose or prescribe but we are on holiday 1000 miles from home and so I would appreciate knowing if this is a muscle sprain or something that we should go home for. No pain elsewhere, I can do yoga exercises for back mostly without pain.And I can walk and swim fine once I get going. Mostly , while I can feel the pain as a kind of stinging in that one spot, it is when I bend down to pick something up that is becomes very evident but there is no pain in the spine at all. I would appreciate knowing if anyone else has had this.
