Severe Muscle Guarding one year after lower back sprain

Hey guys I posted on here earlier in the year, basically a year ago (September) I had a bad lumbar tear in my right side that has resulted in lingering neuro issues in my right arm and leg and is affected by standing for to long, weather etc.... My neuro is better now than it was say 6 months ago but in August of this year I started feeling a very bad tightness on my right side between the pelvis and rib cage. It got worse and worse until you could barely put your finger between there and now I have pain there, muscle tightness and feel it in my hip to. I was in the kitchen yesterday cooking and had to stand for an hour and a bit, my side started to lock, so did my hip and then that flared up my neuro.

Im really down and feeling defeated cause just when I was getting able to handle the neuro symptoms this hits me and is a whole other beast to tackle. Has anyone had something similar, do you guys think its related to the lower back sprain and then being very inactive all year due to the neuro pain?


Continue to suffer from alignment issue and myofasical pain in rib cage and pelvic area.
Nerve pain and back pain are more stable these days but still get flare ups.
