Tests came negative. Intense pain in lower back. Is this because of stress?

I have been suffering from an intense pain in my lower back for nearly ten years.What is strange is that all the tests have proved that my back is fine. Still,despite all manner of treatments including R.F, (radio frequency ones) I can hardly walk for this problem. Is this possibly the result of stress? And if so,what can I do? (I am 60 years of age)

Hi there,

Stress could be one possibility. Have you tried breathing and relaxation exercises? If no, I would suggest you try it. Also try applying volini gel on the back and 15 minutes later apply hot fomentation. Has an MRI of the back been done? You haven't mentioned if you are male/ female. I would suggest a urologist opinion if you are male or a gynaecologist opinion if a female to rule out more sinister causes of backacke.

Hope this helps.
