I’ve got a dodgy back at the best of times (from bad posture, couple of falling/car accidents etc.) but the discomfort is always short and will ease after rest.
For the last 3-4 weeks I’ve had this dull sort of ache in one specific location on my mid-lower spine that I’ve never experienced before. It’s there all the time. I’m not in any pain but every time I slightly over arch backwards or forwards it feels like one or maybe two vertebrae are getting compressed.
I was hoping it would chill out and sort itself out but it hasn’t. If anything it’s getting worse as I’m now getting these short flurries of pins and needles/numbness in my leg which I think are releated as I’ve never had these before either. I’m thinking possibly I’ve trapped a nerve.
I try to avoid going to the doctor unless absolutely necessary but it’s looking more and more like I need to get this checked out.
Has anyone else expericed anything like this? Any advise would be grand.
