I have a dull consistent pain in my lower left back. Lying down or standing there is no pain. However, some movements like bending to my right will increase the pain and sometime the pressure of a hard backed chair pushing on the spot will cause increased pain. Level of pain generally is about a 2 (on scale of 10), but with pressure from a chair or leaning can increase to a 4. I can also push on the spot with my fist and the pain will increase.
