To cut a very long story short, I have pain in my lower back, right side - ? QL muscle which is worse when sitting. (I do a sit down job but like to run and weight train)
I also get sharp stabbing pains in my hip that just appear from nowhere, like a flash. I can be walking down the road and BOOM it hits me and it's gone but I nearly crumple to a heap in agony. This happens now and again but the ache in my lower back is ALWAYS there, worse when sitting. When I do sit it feels likeI'm sat on a rock hard surface, but only on my right side and then pain goes up into my lower back (right side). I find sensitive areas in my lower back and when in pain, if I press them with fingers or most recently a therecane the pain in my back goes for a while but then comes back.
The pain originally started in my groin/testicles and worked it's way to my lower back. I think I may have done this by bad form when weight training... 4 years of MRI, X-RAY, NCT and hopeless physio later and I'm still in the same position.
I do have very tight hamstrings which I'm starting to stretch so maybe that could be a cause ?
I go back to my consultant next month and I think my last physio is suggesting painkilling injections.
I just don't know what to do
Any help or advice would be massively appreciated
