Re: Pain like being stuck with a pin in lower back???
Hi Leapy and everyone!
I hate these pain stories. I feel so bad for everyone suffering.
I'm replying because I get those sharp jabby pains out of the blue too. Sometimes it happens when I lean too much on my right foot, or twist wrong.
I put my back out and have a bulging disc L4-L5 from picking up a dog back in December. My bulging disc isn't suppose to be too bad, but it sill causes pain. It started out as electrocution style pain shooting all of the way down my right leg, now it's the little sharp jabby pains in my butt and lower back. It's definitley the sciatic nerve. I think the tissue around it gets inflamed and that's when it's worse. I can actually feel swelling in my lower back when it's inflamed. I also have a slipped disc in L5-S1, which has been a pain off and on for 20 years, but not as bad as this bulging disc.
I go to the nuero tomorrow about my MRI results. I pray that we all get relief soon!
