Only 16 with back problems!
I have had back pains for the past 2 years now, I don't even know what's wrong with it really, it's kinda hard to explain where the pain is too. The first time I had a pain was back when I was 14, I was sat at my computer playing a video game and all of a sudden I felt it in my back, at the time I didn't think much of it. But it kept getting worse, and about 10 or 15 minutes after it started to hurt A LOT. Like... I'm serious here this is the most EXCRUCIATING pain i ever felt in my entire life. Luckily it only got that bad once... I started screaming in pain and had to get my mom to bring me to my local doctor after 30 minutes of this agonizing pain. It wouldn't ease up at all. I got down there and after the doctor examined my back he told me I had an S shaped curve in my spine and he put me on medication for the pain and said to come back after so long. When I went back he he took a look at my spine again and this time he told me that I have a twist in my spine possibly from bad posture and that I needed to exercise it. I did them and the pain went away for a few months, but now its back and I'm doing the exercises but it doesn't seem to be stopping at all. But I know that it gets really bad when I'm out on my bmx or on quad or snowmobile, and the first time I was doing the exercises i wasnt riding anything like that at the time and when I started doing that stuff, it's been paining, so I'm not sure if they have anything to do with it really or not. Also when I try to sit up straighter I find that my back tends to hurt worse usually, and it's only when I sit up or lay down, if I'm standing I dont really find that it hurts so much. Any suggestions / opinions / comments greatly appreciated.
