Hi I'm hoping someone has some idea of what I'm experiencing. When I bend over, vacuuming, shoveling, etc, I end up with alot of pain in the lower back which runs from the lower middle of my back and spreads out to the middle of either side of my lower back. the longer I am bent over the worse the pain gets. It ends up in my legs. I have to stop what I'm doing after about 5-10 minutes, and then stand straight, which is sore to do. Then the intense pain goes away once I am able to stand straight and residual pain lingers which an ibrupropen seems to help some. I have not yet been to the doctor with this. Thank you for any input.View Thread
