Help. Lower back pain kills me if I stand too long.

I've recently taken on a job that requires me to stand and bend at the waist for long periods of time. After a half hour to an hour, I must sit down. I have stiff pain in my lower back and my buttocks become very tense and uncomfortable

Re: Help. Lower back pain kills me if I stand too long.

Hi, I have had this same problem for years. You should get this checked out, as your new job aggravates the condition and can actually make it way worse. This is what happened to me, and I herniated a disk just standing too long, had surgery, then when I attempted to go back to work, I had bad pain trying to stand for a half hour, it has progressed over the years to where I am now waiting on seeing doctors once again, as I can only walk with a cane. It's hard to pinpoint your problem because I have many things still wrong with my back, stenosis, herniation, compression, tears, and arthritis. Good luck to you and I hope you get this checked out soon.

I agree - it sounds like it might be a herniated disc. I have three herniated discs and cannot stand more than a few minutes. I would get it checked out by a doctor.

Re: Help. Lower back pain kills me if I stand too long.

This is also a basic symptom of spinal stenosis.

Wink Re: Help. Lower back pain kills me if I stand too long.

Definatly follow up with your doctor. I was a hair stylist and for years ignored my back pain until the christmas rush came through 3 years ago. I had episodes of back pain throughout my life and blown it off. This particular night I did not get the chance to sit an entire shift. I noticed stiffness in my lower back and leg and to say the least a pain in the butt. When I got hone that night I went to relax in the living room with my kids when I noted pain traveling down my legs that was very intense at the time I was 34 years old nearly 35. Diagnosed with spondlosislethesis they performed a spinal fusion of L5 and S1. The doctor noticed problems with the two upper disk but hoped that the fusion would help. It did for the most part but now it has been 3 1/2 years later. I am going in for back surgery#2 and I am going to be fused from L3 to S1
