Hi all my names Tom, im 24 and in good shape at 6 '2 73kg,
About 2 months ago i started getting lower back pain, it was not that bad just needed 2 panadeine forte to ease the pain after work. Two weeks had gone by with the pain being consistent and not residing, i then went and got an xray with no abnormalities. The pain has been constant in the middle of my lower spine, when I bend backwards the slightest im in all sorts of pain, I am able to bend forward to touch my toes easily with no pain.
I am not able to stand in a position for longer then 1 minute without having to move because of the pain, sitting is easier though it is painful and i do use a heat pack all the time. I have to stand after half an hr and that is pushing it.
I wake in the mornings with lower back pain every morning now, this has only started in the past 3-4 weeks, before then everything had been due to standing or sitting. The pain has been so server several times only 10mg of endone would ease the pain. The doctors are hesitant to give me endone all the time though and i see their point.
I do not want to be on medication for back pain, this has effected my ability to do anything. I am stuck in im house all the time now. I am doing physio twice a week but it seems to do nothing, I think i should go back to jujitsu but my doctors are telling me not to.
Please help some one, this is ruining my life.
