Musculoskeletal pain: You are describing significant pain and spasm in your back muscle. This is almost always related to primary muscular strain. It does not sound like a disc problem. Stretching, heat and massage would all be helpful. If you're doing some athletic activity or workout, this may be aggravating your back. Be careful with proper lifting mechanics. Do you have a new mattress? Pillow between legs at night. ...Read more

Trauma to lower backresulting in multiple  lumps just above the si jointover the erector spinae group and lumbarcausing me to lean forward?

Back spasm: The lumps may be the bony prominences in this area or can be a muscle spasm. If your pain is persistent and radiates down a leg, imaging may be needed to help with diagnosis. The leaning forward is a way of decompressing the spinal canal. This may take pressure off a nerve root. If leaning back exacerbates pain, i recommend seeing your doctor and possible imaging. ...Read more

What i want to know can a large amount of lipomas over the lumbar erector spinae groups cause excessive pelvic interior?

Unlikely: You notice a lot of lipomas. If you have pelvic interior lipoma it can be malignant. This will be a large liposarcoma. It can be seen on ct scan. They require removal. Lipomas on the back shouldn't cause interior pain. ...Read more
