Hello, Roughly around three weeks ago i was tumbling in my front yard. Haven t done so in a while. Nothing seemed to bother me that day. I woke up with my back causing me so much pain.The Feeling was in the middle of the spine. Feels like It constantly needs to be popped. About a week later i start having horrible pains in my rib area. Right under my breast. So i finally go to the doctor the take xrays of my lungs to make sure its not a collapsed lung. Nothing found. I can t sleep at night. I find it more comfortable sleeping on the floor. And sometimes in the middle of the night i have so much pain in the back/rib area i feel the need to get up and vomit.The MRI on my spine is next..?

Hello, I m just looking for others input on this. About a year and a half ago my lower back started to hurt really bad, The type of pain thats really sharp. It felt as if my muscles in my back were being ripped out. I went to the emergency room, With out x-rays they diagnosed me with sacrolitis. However I went to my family doctor and got x-rays then I was refereed to a neurologist. He said the lower part of my spine (Coccyx) was pivoting and moving back and forth. The only way to fix it was with surgery by fusing the spine together. But He told me I m to young for that. Im only (18). Well recently about 3 weeks ago my lower back started hurting really bad, To the point where id move and want to cry from the pain being so bad. It hurt like that for about a week then just stoped. Last night I was moving some stuff in the basement and when I stood up the pain came back, It hurts horribly when I go to stand up, If I cough or even sneeze, Any movement of my lower spine is killing me. I ended up falling out of bed this morning when I got up. I feel like my lower back is extremly tense and locked up. As if I have to be hunched over when I walk, Because If I straigten my back out I get a sharp sharp pain. On a side note theres something wrong with my ligaments (Joints) they all pop and crack (Knees, Knucles, Back, Fingers, Neck, Ect) I was seen by a bone specialist when I was 13, He told me I have to much nitrogen in my bones. I m just looking to see what others opinions are on this, I know the best advice is to go to the hospital. But I lost my insurance and I can t afford it..

My 58 yr old husband came down with back and hip ache and chills five days ago. His lower back and shoulder blade area hurt terribly bad for three days. He went to our daughter who is a physical therapist and got quite a bit of relief from her. But, awoke with a horrible headache this morning and still no energy. Do you think this is just the flu or something more serious?
