I have incredible sharp pain when someone presses on my


Q: I have incredible sharp pain when someone presses on my lower back. I have been this way for as long as I can remember and the best way to describe it is as though there are needles under my skin that when pressed or massaged is sharp pain that takes my breath away. It's only my lower back, and I am very obese now (265 lbs, 5'1"). I don't know if weight has to do with it, it usually does, but I haven't always been this big and have had the problem. Is this normal for certain people?

Symptoms:  Sharp pain in lower back when pressed
