Back pain symptoms may seem obvious. But do you know when symptoms of back pain are more serious or when to see a doctor? Learn what action to take & when...
I am 22 & have been very active since a child! In the last few months I have been suffering from bouts of lower back pain & more to the left side.
Basically when I jog it feels like it is tightening & aches so much that it makes me stop!
When I stand or sit in one spot too long it aches.
When sitting & it begins to ache if I squeeze my left buttock & hip i hear a loud crack/pop in my left lower back which gives me relief for a few minutes.

Can anyone diagnose possible causes & any ways to improve my situation????

You may want to try doing some light stretchs to see if it is a tight muscle.

Otherwise, You may want to think about bringing it to your doctors attention if the problem presists.
