I have back pain for several years. just within last few months my back has been catching. For example: I was washing my hair, shaving my legs, cutting my toenails. It hurts to walk or bend over. I HAD FACET SHOTS FEW YEARS AGO, Helped for a few weeks. Is this a pinched nerve?

Hello,

Prolonged back pain can happen due to bulging discs that cause nerve root compression. This causes pain in the back that refers to the legs.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
