Exclamation Nooooo!

Im only 15 and everyday I have to ride horses for a job and because I have a horse that needs riding everyday to stay up to par.. okay so my problem is.. my back aches constintly ... my dad says that if it continues to hurt that im going to have to stop riding.. those of you that know me.. know that's not an option.. its my life.. and when I say my back aches.. I mean like if I EVEN move wrong I feel like im being stabbed// being 15 is this a problem?
When I wake up in the morning im stiff a little but then I don't hurt until I actually move around for a while... and after I ride.. soo...

I guess ill tell my dad everything is alright because just him saying that made me cry.. I wont stop riding.. id rather ride and have pain then not....have either...

I was 17. Back condition caused it. Back surgery "fixed" it. I was riding again in less than a year.

Best to go get your back checked out....

What IMO mean?

Honey, if I hadn't gotten my back looked at and had the surgery, I would be paralyzed and never ridden again.

You probably don't have the same issue as me, but don't take that chance. You'll need your back for years and years to come .. take care of it now.

Again .. imo .. and sorry if I sound preachy.

I'm almost 50 and still ride ... medicine has improved vastly since I had my surgery ..

You're probably dealing with something much less serious, but best to know.

Okay thanks:) my dad says it could be because I don't drink to much water.. could that be it?

Until you get this looked into by a medical professional you don't know. Back issues can be really serious and last a lifetime. As scary as it is to think of not being able to ride right now....think of the long term.
Go get it looked at, get some answers, deal with what is causing the pain. My sister had back surgery at 18. Before the surgery she couldn't ride. For a short time after she couldn't ride. But she got back riding. If she hadn't had the surgery she wouldn't be riding at all.

Usually that will cause muscle cramps .. but only your dr can tell.
