Lower Back Pain/Sensation when standing after sitting for a long time. (over 15 minutes)

Several years ago I started having a mild lower back sensation when standing after sitting for a long period. It gradually came on after 30 to 45 seconds and lasted also a minute and went away. Over the years it has gotten worse. To a point today that I have to stop and lean against a wall or bend over until it passes. It's getting to be a real disadvantage and restricting.

I started checking into finding out what was going on.:
1. Went to very good spine Doctor at xxxx Hospital. I took a MRI and from the results of that he said that my back was in pretty good shape for my age. He prescribed steroid shots in my lower back. I had two of them. They have not helped at all. The Doctors suggested that I see a neurologist. Have an appointment next week.

Does anyone have any ideas or experience with a situation like this? Please Help!

    Hi Leolion,

    There was a point in time where I couldn't sit for any longer than a half hour without getting bad lower back pain. I assumed it was from the terrible chair I had in my office, considering that when I moved onto a new job, the pain gradually went away. Regardless, a great neurologist in north NJ I'd recommend is Dr. XXXXXX. My friend's father had some herniated disc issues but had it taken care of really well. I was planning on making an appointment with Dr. XXXXX but like I said, my symptoms went away when I started using a better chair.
