Is lower back pain and riding connected?
For the past month or more I have been having severe lower back pain, I've been to doctors, I've done X-Rays, I've had MRIs and they aren't showing anything. I do have an extra L6 vertabrae, but it's pretty common, and shouldn't cause pain. I've ridden for my entire life and I'm wondering if they could be connected.
It's hard to describe where the pain is, but its on the top of my hips on both sides of my spine. The pain is centered equally into the 2 rounded joints there, and they're about 4 inches apart, going across my spine.
I sort of wonder if it could be arthritis, but I thought you had to be older to get it, but I'm not sure. I hope someone here could give me some clue as to what is going on, I was in the hospital because the pain is so intense. I haven't been able to ride, and I've barely been able to go to the barn to see them :( Thank you so much for reading this and for any help someone can give!
