This can be from disc prolbems
Exam and possibly MRI are needed.
The correct physical therapy can help avoid surgery.
See a physical medicine and rehabilitation doctor for assessment.
This is a specialist MD
It is their job to get your spine back into shape
I have never had any problems with my back. I have attended one session of physio
It can develop slowly until it is a problem
You need the specialist to look at this
And maybe an MRI
x ray is useless in this situation
is it strange that is worse when standing still?
The worsening of pain can be variable
Individual to individual
That makes it even more likely to be a disc problem.
ok I thought disc pain would be more severe.... I have not taken any pain killer.
It can be all degrees
it will get more severe if you leave it without treatment
Hence my recommendation to see a PM&R MD.
Ok. and what is the difference between disc / muscle and joint pain? The physio said my joint there was stiff
The joint is part of the disc problem.
The joints are in the spine.
is this all you have for me?
What other questions?
I am not happy with the service at all. ALl you have said is to get an mri which I thought myself.
I have seen a physio i.e. physcial therapist
