Low back pain (LBP): Pain localized to the low back (lumbar spine) can be quite debilitating. Although the etiology of the pain can be multifactorial, the most common cause of lbp is a simple strain/sprain of the ligaments and/or tendons that support the spine. If the source is from an internal derangement of the disc (e.g., herniation), however, a formal evaluation from a spine specialist may be required. ...Read more

Lower back pain can't sit or stand straight sometimes spases out C-section 1 month ago history of lower back pain never been to dr. Tohave looked at thanks.

It: It is hard to say what is causing the back pain, given the limited history, but if it is so severe, it is something you should definitely see your primary care doctor for.
Some of my thoughts are:
1. Whether back pain started after epidural anesthesia. Is there an infection.
2.Another thing is low back pain from pregnancy could be from the way your pelvic bones are realigned due to the way fetus sat in the pelvis, but this is unlikely if you have not had any back pain during pregnancy.

I hope this is helpful. But my sincere advice to you is to see your doctor to be evalauted for back pain. Congratulations on your new baby! It is hard to be in so much pain on the top of being a new mother. ...Read more

For a month I've had lower back pain n stiffness making it hurt when I sit, cough, bend. Lying down/standing straight feels best. What could it be?

Consult PT: This could be a strain. There's a whole bunch of questions that need to be answered to make the diagnosis here as this is one of the most common complaints to primary care physicians. You can potentially make the diagnosis by trying a simple therapy. Lay on the floor with you face down and perform a press up, while keeping your hips on the floor. This provides back extension. Do this 10x/day. ...Read more
