Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
What is your Height and weight? Your symptoms suggest Lumbar Spondylosis. Kindly get yourself examined first by a Orthopedist to rule out the exact cause via Physical examination and X ray or MRI.
You may need analgesics and Physiotherapy if it is severe and if you are Overweight, you need to reduce your weight by Regular exercises and Brisk walking.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

It is painful in my back and hip area when straightening up after bending down. This has been getting progressively worse for at least a month. I have no difficulty walking, running or doing moderate exercises and in fact these activities seem to alleviate any pain temporarily (an hour or so). I also feel better for a few hours after rising from a night s sleep. What could be the cause and what can I do to ease or eliminate it?

I have been seeing neurologist for several years. Had nerve in legs, peripheral neuropothy, treated with gauminex infusions. Muscles in legs, thighs and calves have spasims even at rest and this year have been diagnozed with stiff person syndrome. Just within last month started baclofen 10M tablets split take l/2 pill 4 times daily to test. Has helped especially with sleep, muscles were going out aany time I turned. I noticed after a month that my osteoarthritis seems to be getting active (have it in my spine) since taking bacloffen. It seems the pill helps the muscles but now my lower back/hips and sometime side of r leg gets very achy. Is this the consequence of the baclofen. Dr. wants me to increase these pills to a whole pill 2/day. Fear how bad my osteo arthritius us going to flare up. What is common ground here.

Hello, I have lumbar spondylosis and for the last 6 months have been having pain higher up between my shoulder blades and spasms over the top of my back. I was sent for an X-ray which showed degenerate changes in my thoracic spine and the starlings of osteoarthritis. For the past month I have been getting pains in my legs, mainly behind the knee and tops of my calves. To rule out pain being caused from my spine I was sent for an MRI on my thoracic and lumbar spine areas. The results have shown a shadow on my thoracic spine area and subsequently I have been referred for another MRI to look at this shadow in more detail. Of course the word shadow has prompted cancer immediately in my head, although my gp explained that I shouldn't worry about cancer initially as she thinks I would have been sent back to the hospital much quicker if this was thought to be the problem. My questions are; would a tumour have shown in the X-ray I had in June and what other causes could be the cause of a shadow on my spine? Thank you Gina
