Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 9 days ago.

For how long has been troubling you now? Is it always at rest that it hurts you the most ? Does it get better with activity ?

Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 9 days ago.

If thats the case then you should get an x ray on your back to rule out Ankylosing Spondylitis. This is a condition which can cause lower backache / stiffness which typically worsens with rest and improves wiith activity.

You need to be more active as in doing exercise or activities like swimming which will help keep the soreness away.

You can take ibuprufen or naproxen if it hurts you bad.

In short i would recommend an x ray on your lumbosacral spine , more physical activity and painreliefas i mentioned above.

Hope it was useful.
