Patient : I've been randomly having sudden shooting pains in my lower mid back. It comes out of no where, at different times of the day and during different standing or sitting positions. It has been more frequent as of late. The pain is so bad that it takes my breathe away, although it does go away after about 20 seconds. What should I do? Could it be arthritis?
