Re: low back pain
The new MRI may help shed some light, the exercising depending on how hard or heavy may have hurt your back some, but it could also be a strain or possibly scar tissue bugging you too. Once you get your new results you'll know whats going on, but as I posted in your other post the annular tear I've read can heal some, I had one and then not again at my 6 month 2nd mri so it may disappear. Not much help I know, but we're looking at an old mri pre surgery. Hard to tell. By the sounds of your symptoms you could have herniated or irritated another area of disc but don't go crazy it's only a guess on a message board. I'm going in for my 2nd surgery soon as it is.
If it starts flaring get rest, and don't push yourself through the pain as we often do. Try some ice or a heating pad, ibuprophin if thats what you take for pain, you must of stirred something up and when it stirrs its usually inflammation that you'll want to die down some to get some relief.
