Lower back pain

Recently I have acquired lower back pain that is very uncomfortable when I sit too long, and makes it difficult to walk when I get up from a sitting position. Up until the pain started, my gait was wide a,nd I had no pain at all. My primary neurologist gave me muscle relaxers and told me to lay on a heating pad. This was only a temporary fix until I see the specialist. Anyone have this problem?

i dont have that problem but could it be spinocerebeller ataxia? i am hunched over a bit but have not back pain. check out the definition of it


Hi Teresa, I have this problem too in my lower left back,all my stiffness and weaknesses seem to be on the left side. I’ve tried yoga and this sometimes helps but sometimes it’s just too difficult and I can’t do very much.
Best wishes,Anna
