Hi Roy. This sounds like a disk problem in your lower back especially if touching your toes helps since that maneuver is like traction on the spine which can pull the disk back in. You may just have a bulging disk but to determine the extent of the problem you need an MRI of the lumbar spine

This happend about 2 months ago up to which time I had no problem. just a bit of arthritus in my knees.

Well it could be just muscle spasm Roy but disk problems can come and go so I still think it would be best to get it checked out with an MRI so you can get some therapy for it before it gets any worse
