have been experiencing major throbbing pain in my lower back. i drive an hour to work and an hour back everyday, and in the mornings when i get out of the car, i cant stand up straight for about a half hour until i really get moving. im 34 years old and i am in construction. the pain is a throbbing pain in waves and i feel it in my quadriceps in both legs, and also in my bowels simultaneously. i havent heard anyone with pain in front of their bodies from back pain, usually ive heard of numbing down the legs but i dont have numbing. ive had it for years, but it is becoming detrimental to my job and quality of life. any information on what may be going on would be appreciated. thanks!View Thread
