I have lower back pain when I am sitting or lying down in certain positions. When I straighten my back out, and when I try to stretch it, I get pain in my middle or lower back. I am a gamer, and I sit down in pretzel style on my chair with my body leaning forward, most comfortable while playing games. I have never seen a doctor for this, and now I am interested in doing so. I would say it has got worse since the last four months due to lifting my dog that had problems with her back legs, so I was constantly lifting her all the time, and she weighed around 90 lbs.

You may be suffering from a disc bulge. Pain is considered chronic once it lasts for more than three months and exceeds the body’s natural healing process. Chronic pain in the lower back often involves a disc problem, joint problem, and an irritated nerve root. Common causes include lumbar herniated disc, degenerative disc, facet joint dysfunction, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, osteoarthritis deformity. Follow the below exercises for ten days, lower tummy strengthening, deep abdominal strengthening, bridge, pelvis tilt, lower backstretch, leg stretch, piriformis stretch. Apply Diclofenac (Cataflam) ointment on the pain and cover it with a cloth, clean it after ten minutes following hot water fermentation. This process will help relieve pain immediately.
