Patient :I have woken up the past few mornings with a really bad pain in my lower back. At first it's extremely hard to move or bend over, but after a while the pain eases. However, after sitting for 10+ minutes the pain returns. It's an aching pain that turns in to a sharp stabbing pain in my right lower back consistently every few seconds. I've had a sore back before, but this is really difficult to function with. Yesterday the pain felt like it radiates slightly towards my lower right abdomen as well. What should I do?
