I have been experiencing lower back pain for over a year now, but in the last couple of months it has become an everyday problem. The pain is a sharp shooting pain that will stop you in your tracks. When I wake up in the morning I don't experience much pain, but as the day progresses the pain becomes more frequent. I don't have constant pain, I mainly experience it when getting out of a sitting position. At night I can find comfortable positions and sleep most of the night, but changing positions can be quite painful.
I'm posting this message to see if other people have similar symptoms to mine and what were their outcomes.
I was at my GP maybe 6 months ago, when the symptoms weren't as bad and I wasn't as concerned. He just prescribed some pain medication, which I didn't take as I wasn't in a lot of pain at the time.
I'm a 37 year old male, 6' 1", 190lbs. Desk job, probably not as active as I should be!
