My fear is that this is going to be a recurring problem for the rest of my life. It started over two years ago and comes and goes. I wonder if the stress of a new job helped exacerbate it, or if not working out regularly for the past two months has contributed as well. A year and a half ago, I was very close to needing back surgery, and I was not nearly in as much pain. I would be lying if I said I wasn't terrified that this time I may need surgery.
I need to take care of myself a little bit better. Anyone have any tips on how to resolve lower back pain?
