I am 20 years old and for the past month I have been have this really bad lower back pain, it feels more like i work my back muscles for years and the soreness is just starting to kick in. My mom thinks it could be a pinched nerve. could it be? I can barely walk because it hurts so bad. Please help me figure out whats wrong. I cant go to the doctor because it's so expensive and I don't have insurance and cant afford insurance.

what kind of movement can you do. a little stretching is good i'll try to find some and send them to you....pete

it may not be pinched nerve. might be muscle tightness.

when you put both your hands to your hips, thumbs at the back. if you hit the pain when you move your thumb downwards. it is possible that its your kidney. drink lots of water

I dont have insurance, so im posting online for suggestions.
Im also having lower back pain. Doesnt hurt to walk up stairs...but it hurts to walk down. Doesnt hurt when i lay on my back, stomach, or sides. But it hurt like a mutha when i try to get up. Took 2 flexiril and the pain didnt subside at all. Apply heat does nothing. Took one Vicodin 500 and it only dumbed the pain down a little... Any ideas?

It should also be noted that if i slouch or put any pressure on my stomach by leaning forward, kneeling, etc. That there is incredible pain in my lower back.

I'd see a physiotherapist if i were you, could be a range of possible causes, but sounds like something i had once - a disc bulge in the back. Good luck!!
