Lower Back. - February 1st 2009, 02:57 PM

Okay, for the past month or so, my lower back has hurt a lot. And then I also get where the inside of my hips hurt when I walk sometimes. It was just annoying at first, and now it's to the point that I don't want to walk, I don't want to move. It's just blergh. And it comes on and off. Sometimes I'll feel fine.

I've been consistently taking ibuprofen whenever it starts to really hurt, helps. But sometimes it's like a dull ache, just annoying, but not enough to complain?

My mom is trying to get me in to see a chiropractor, but we need the money first.
Is there anything I can do to just ease the pain when it happens until I get in to see a professional?

I have back problems so I feel your pain!
back pain can be so annoying cause like you said even if its not enought to complain about it can really affect you. until you can see a professional then I would carry on with the ibuprofen, that definately helps me. You could try a hot water bottle or something cause heat can help ease it, or try some heat gel. Oh, and keep an eye on your posture that can really affect your back.
I hope it gets better soon

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but its sinking,
racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
shorter of breath, and one day closer to death.

when you're sitting down make sure you have a cushion in the small of your back and your shoulders back. other than that, all i can suggest is to avoid carrying/pushing/pulling anything really heavy. also, you could try using a hot water bottle to ease the pain.

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..
