hello, im 18 years of age and having a back problem. my lower right back has been tight as hell
For the passed 3 months my back has been stiff when bending over and doing some movements, not to much pain jus thtness and soreness if I have just worked out the day before...
I saw a orthopedic and he said wait 6 weeks and it should be fine, now six weeks later its probabley the same maybe a little better.
this problem didn't occur after a injury or trauma which really baffells me...ive been doing stretches and icing and not much benefit.
what really scares me is I have this small bump on my back which I found a month or two before the pain (under skin) does not cause any pain . I had it checked by my primary and he said its just a sebaceous cyst. I don't know if its related to my stiffness but im scared I have like back cancer or something...
I want to see my ortho again but I couldn't get an appointment for another month
I saw another doc about cyst said its nothing and it doesn't need to be removed, been waiting for 3 months to stiffness to go away its not going to go away on its own. im going to have to find a spine ortho and set an appointmentView Thread
