Hi, my name is Nohemi and I'm 19. I was having some issues, but I dont have health insurance, so I cant go see a doctor. I thought I'd post here to see if anyone could help me.
I get this very sharp, strong pain in my lower spine whenever I lay down flat either on my back or stomach. I would say its an 8 on a 1-10 scale. The weird thing is that it doesnt happen while I'm laying down, but when I move to get back up. Also, it doesnt happen in the morning after I sleep, only if I lay down for a short period of time. The pain only lasts until I'm fully up and walking around again. I've tried doing a stretch and laying down, but I get the same result. It's probably important to note that I'm about 35 lbs overweight, have never had any kind of surgery and have a naturally large back side.
Like I said, I cant go see a doctor, so I would really appreciate anyone who could tell me what I ca. Do to reduce this pain.
Thanks, NohemiView Thread
