Back ache BUT only when i stand!

i am not very active i am 36 and 25lbs overweight i have had desk jobs and very physical jobs over the years and nothing has changed with my back problem the weird thing is it is only when i stand still! if i have to wait in line or stand on the bus ect...its not shooting pains or anything it feels like a bad burning ache and is in the lower part of my back only if i try to move while standing it doesnt help and is only relieved by lying down or sitting...this happens within 3-4 seconds of standing still! it is always instant and can ruin my day if i have to do alot of standing and then move around because walking after doesnt relieve it much...i just find this wierd ive never heard of backache from standing still!

Re: Back ache BUT only when i stand!

the one thing I have found on this board is that no matter how unusual something seems, there is another person here that has the same thing. Among many other things, my chief complaint is identical to yours. I had it before my surgery and i still have the aching in my lower back that ramps up to an 8 if I dont sit down. I use a very sturdy cane theat if need be, I can hunch over and support some of my weight until I can sit. I recently found a 3 wheeled bike that I can use to exercise. I use it almost daily now and maybe this will help me lose some weight.
Peace and Prayers,
