I am a30yo male, in good health, 20lb over what I weighed at 18, and suffering from increased lower back problems. I seem to be able to lift at times without problems. The other day I was using a screwdriver in a seated position and felt something get weird that was was it. It locked up and I was walking like I was 80yo. I have had 2 other painful episodes in the past week that crippled me because I am active and need to get things done.
I have been researching chiro work and have been trying all sorts of things. Backed went into spasm hard last night. I was having my sister rub on my back a bit and she pushed down on my back just below my waist line and I thought I was going to scream. When I feel my back, the muscles that hurt are around the L3 area, but when my sister pushed on my back, the area that caused cringing pain was "below the belt". This has led me to thing I have SI problems causing my pain.
I can also rehab this injury and lift fine in 1 week though I might pay for it with more pain. Can anyone tell me if this seems like SI problems or what else I might try to either confirm it or something else?
