I feel like I have bones rubbing together in my lower back.
I have had trouble with back pain off and on for years. I have gone to the doctor about it once or twice, but they always tell me it's a pulled muscle..but it doesn't feel like it.
My lower back started hurting really bad about 3-4 days ago. It hurts at the very bottom of my spine..like right above my butt. It honestly feels like I have bones rubbing together. I can hear popping and clicking sounds when I move certain ways. The pain is excruciating. It radiates around to my hips, up my back a little, and sometimes down into my inner thighs. It makes it hard to walk. I have even had to limp before because it feels like I can't put all of my weight on my legs.
It hurts so bad! I am going to make another doctor's appointment soon (on a day that DH is off work to stay home with our 3 kids plus the 2 that I babysit). I'm scared to find out what the problem is though.
I have some cartilage damage in my ribs. I can't remember what the doctor called it, but basically my cartilage is degenerating. This causes one of my ribs to pop out of place (which is extremely painful!).
I'm really scared that this is what is happening to back too. =(
Anyone have any experience with this type of back pain?
