Hello, I have been suffering with bad pain and it is even worse when i move my back or sneeze in my lower back, buttocks, hips and my right thigh for 2 months now and I very rarely get sharp tingling shooting pain through my whole leg as it has only happened to me twice in the 8 weeks whilst standing up. The pain seems to get worse when i sit down for a while or i stand for a while as well. It also hurts more at night and in the morning when i get up. I have seen a physio and Doctor, the Physio thinks i have injured my lumber spine and there is some nerve damage and the doctor wants to do some tests for ankylosing spondylitis as he says it is unlikely a herniated disc as i am only 18 and it could be linked to my other illness which is Chrons disease. I have been lifting weights including deadlifitng for just under a year now and in the last several months i had been getting very mild back pain but didn't think much of it. Then one day which is about just over 8 weeks ago i noticed it got worse so i stopped lifting the weights. When i went to the physio i got given some stretches to do which kind of helped a little bit and i was discharged but the pain has occurred again. I just thought i would post this and get some opinions from people, the only thing i can really do now is just do these tests and see what it is but i am worried that it could be ankylosing spondylitis.
