Hello all (:
First things first I'm a 21 year old female, and I'm currently not in my home country (USA), I'm visiting India with my husband.
About 2 days go my lower back started aching and its progressed to the point where sitting or standing is darn near excruciating. I'm not really sure what I've done to cause the pain, a few weeks ago I hurt my back picking up a heavy bucket of water but the pain went away eventually. Last weekend I went on a very long road trip, and when we got back to the hotel my back hurt a little but not like it does now. I don't have any symptoms like numbness or pain in my legs, although the pain occasionally radiates up and out. I went to a doctor yesterday but all she did was give me pain meds (that don't work) and told me it could be due to a number of problems. I'm kind of desperate now because it hurts so much and I'm so far away from home I'm not really sure what to do ):
