I have been suffering pain in my back for a long time now and really should have had it looked at a while ago. The pain comes and goes and fluctuates in severity. It is all on my lower back and feels tight and weak like it is ready to pop when at its worst. I am very active and rarely have to bother with it when playing football but when it comes to most normal activities I feel it restricted. I also do manual labour and its been getting progressively worse to the point that it's stopping from doing some jobs.
