Lumbago: Running on hard surfaces is like jack knifing on the spine. Specially if you also do weight lifting, will destroy lower back. That is why you never see on the olympic tem a weight lifter after age 24. If you do not do weight lifting, check your uric acid to be bellow 6.0. I am seeing a lot of young people with elevated uric acid, which i did not see before. ...Read more

Herniated discs: Herniated discs cause compression of nerves. Tears in the discs (annular tears) can mimic a herniated disc. When the low back (lumbar spine) is involved, the pain radiates into the legs. Pain to the abdomen is usually a herniated disc in the thoracic spine or there is another reason for the pain. ...Read more

Or perhaps a systemic inflammatory process: post-infectious arthritis/arthralgia, ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis?? Need careful physical/laboratory eval:) ...Read more
