Originally Answered: Why does my lower back hurts so much?
With the info. you've given, all know is:
I have known a few women with breats so large that they put too much presure on the spine. Breast reduction (a surgical procedure) might help. I don't know anything about it save what I've heard.
If you're overweight, that can cause spinal pain and problems.
In my early 20s, I gained an enormous amount of wt very suddenly from hormone pills. My spine was damaged & has plagued me ever since. My sympathies!
If you need to lose weight, don't do it quickly (unless there's immediate danger--something your doctor would tell you). Dieting doesn't work. Changing the way you eat, permanently, does.
See a doctor about this--and find a good one! Ask your GP (or health care provider) for a referal--it's much qucker. Be very picky about the doctor you choose and get a 2nd, 3rd opinion! Be wary of narcotic pain pills. I take them myself, but I learned--by being foolish at the very first--to be extremely careful. When you have severe pain, especially when it disturbs sleep and normal or necessary activities, taking extra is very tempting. Before you accept a prescription for narcotic pain pills, look into your family history to check for any propensity for abuse of meds, just in case. (There's no shame in that--it just happens, eg, some persons are genetically predisposed, and it can be passed on.) I F you take narcotic pain pills, never give in to the temptation to take "just one extra tonight"--that's a slippery slope. Pain management might help. There are clincs specializing in that.
Some doctors who treat chronic pain get hooked on the pain pills themselves. Be careful you do not let one of these treat you!!! Such a doctor could maim you.
Make sure the mattress you sleep on is firm and comfortable to you. Sleeping on the floor can be better for you back than sleeping on a sagging mattress!
Take care when bending. Use your knees.
Stretching exercises can help, but don't begin any exercise before you see a doctor you trust to advise you.
Chronic pain leaves you drained and stressed, especially when it causes prolonged sleep deprivation. I hope you see a good orthopedic doctor soon. Only a doctor can advise you properly.
Good luck & Take Care of yourself. :)
