Hi all, probably pure coincidence, my wife never has time off work. but shes been off these last two days suffering from lower back probs. It started for no apparent reason..i.e..heavy lifting ,bend and the likes. She was chatting on face book yesterday..her sister is also off work with lower back probs, then her other sister is complaining about back ache...her friend from work came online, she is off work with lower back probs ..why has everyone got a glass back all of a sudden...?

Yes, put my back out badly 6 weeks ago, i couldnt stand up straight for 2 day but since I could stand up but it still hurts and doesnt seem to be getting better.

Ive never had my back hurt for more than 3 or 4 days before that.

I dont think theres anything more to it though.

I know with my metal rods in my back, that when the weather gets cold or a storm is about to brew that my back starts to hurt, but I think in their case, it is because they are off work, sitting down and relaxing and not doing their normal routine that the relaxation is allowing their muscle to finally take a rest. Now, that the muscles are relaxed it will take a little while for the motivation to kick in. Usually how I feel too after a days work. Especially, after standing all day. And after a day at campus, from running all day.

Hi,

I have suffered with a bad back for years and had a fair few ops, the best thing i think they can do is keep active. The worst thing for a bad back is to sit down and do nothing, iot will benefit them to just do some basic routine excersises whilst they are off, as painful as it is, it will be worse if they do not get the back moving.

Good luck.

How bizarre!

My bf has been complaining since yesterday of excruciating back-pains!

He insists that he did not do anything strange to bring it on and that the pain just started for no reason at all... At this point he is crippled with the pain and I have to regularly apply huge amounts of Deep Heat.

Had lower back probs for years slipped out discs on 2 separate occasions. Sitting is incredibly hard on your back could be wife's issue man, otherwise i do yoga and other low back excersises along with the ganja of course and it's hardly painful anymore (last disc slip was last summer). Of course it will always trob if I use bad posture for awhile or lift improperly, go to a chiropractor and do some yoga will be tolerably gone before you know it.

I've been having back pains too, but I think its my kidneys since I drink WAY too much coffee and barely any water. As soon as I drink the water, the pain subsides.

I wish you had not have told us that. I am getting sympathy pains just thinking about it. It is not my place to ask you why you have them, but if it is not condesending of me to say so, you are in my thoughts.

Last week was nearly crippled with lower left side back pain, nothing comes to mind as to what brought it about. Woke up and had severe issues just leaving bed. Went to Doc's he said take a week off work, so I did!!! was nice to have some time off but not to be in pain. Took the anti-inflammatorys after a few days it passed, got to going on a good walk daily and no problems since, but odd you pose the question.

The conspiracy here is that it is almost 2012 and we still use archaic means of treatment for back pain.

Medical & and pharmaceutical research has been one of the areas I have been disappointed in.

Geeza ive had lower back problems since i was 12(dislocated my pelvis in a car crash) as some have allready said best thing is to keep mooving you dont want to seize up,my sexy hippy chick loves it when my backs out cause i do all the house work just to keep mooving.
Most of the time when you cant remember doing it you have twisted it in your sleep,happens to me every now and then.
I would say go and see a good austiopath in my experience they are lots better than ciropractors.Should cost about 30 quid but if they fix you then its money well spent.
Good luck.

What do you mean pollution? I live in an idustrial area. Oil tankers, ships, trucks.. can pollution really cause back pains? I'm curious

I have lower back problems, and I have had it for a long long time now. (many years)
And its only one and a half year ago I was being checked for military, where they said that I needed to contact my doctor and get a x-ray of my back, because it was too straight.

So please, if your girlfriend has back problems, contact a doctor.
Your back is the most important thing to get checked if you got pains, in my opinion.

I wish her well, since I know how it is to have back problems.

Kidneys can cause back pain letting you know there's a problem.

And if you don't fix it your body will be robbed of nutrients resulting in Degenerative Disc Disease causing real back problems.


Put water filters under your sink. Water filter on your shower. Put plants in your home and all around your house to clean the air.

DON'T seal your home up like a ziplock bag. Indoor air pollution is bad, you need new air coming in every day.

Watch what you eat. Don't eat anything from China. Buy local. ....I'd avoid Pineapples for awhile....(Fukushima-Hawaii's Pineapples).

Gravity is a real pain in the you know what. Do some light excersises. Broke my 3rd vert when i was 18 from pressure. Horrid pain in my lower back. So i do LIGHT excersises (Which is all your back truly needs) which were advised by the doctor and now my back years later is as if nothing ever happened.


Plus if you work a desk job, then change it up. Sitting work is the farthest from natural we can get. Our bodys dont like it too much. Stay active, get a 10 lb weight andstart doing back excersises.

It is happening more and more. The more people sit at their computers with improper posture, the worse it will get.

I have middle back issues. It effects everything from digestive system to my liver, abdominal muscles etc.

All because I sit hunched over a computer all day at work. This stuff, coupled with growing obesity only compounds peoples issues, then it gets worse.

My lower back has been KILLING me for a while. Worse the past week or two, but I believe its due to my kidney issues and I have something called gilbert's disease? I think thats what it is. Plus my boyfriend has a million year old pullout bed so im basically sleeping on METAL BARS. So thats my story anyways hope your wifes back feels better soon.

Ugh just talking about it is making my back hurt :/

Everyone's lower back hurts, is that what you are saying, friend? I speak here from plain, personal experience, so please take heed.
First of all, you with the lower back problems need to see a good neurosurgeon. The neurosurgeon should then check for Spondylolisthesis or PARS Defect.

I was born with pars defect in L-4, L5, and L-6, and I also have an extra vertebrae which is L7 and doctors cannot explain how, or why I am able to walk, but they think that it is because my L-7 vertebrae stabilizes my spine somehow. My wife has this condition, as do my son, and daughter. My neurosurgeon has PARS. My two stepsons may have PARS. It is a Genetic Defect. Runs in families.

I did not know that I had PARS, and for 12 years or so, I drank heavily to kill the pain always present in my lower back. My choice of poison was Jack Daniel's and Budwiser, and I drank every single day for the whole 12 years. Please, I beg of you, do not fall into the drug/alcohol trap that awaits you, always just around the corner, ready to strike. I almost killed myself several times during this dark period, just take my advice and don't try to drink the pain away.

Mine did not bother me a lot until 1985, when I was in a semi truck roll-over crash which broke my lower back in three places, my Cervical Vertebrae in two places, and separated my entire spine. I was on my back for over two years, and it was thought that I would never walk again. In 1987 my neck vertebrae, C-5 to C-2, was fused together. In 2009 I have lower back surgery, where the PARS was removed, then the whole lover lumbar was fused together, and Titanium Rods and fittings were installed. Let's just say I know a thing or two about back pain, and it's causes. Stay away from narcotic pain killers, you are going to need these later in life. After surgery, you will have to learn how to walk again, bend over again, set in a chair again, all these things you must train you back to do. Get yourself a good Posturepedic mattress, and experiment with pillows until you find one you can sleep with.

Anything else, advice, or whatever, please ask me.
