Hey, I know this isn't as bad as a lot of the gruesome injuries you'll find here, but this is really hindering my training, to the point where I may have to give up running.
Anyway, I've never really had any problems with my back before, so this kinda surprises me.
Whenever I've tried to run lately, after about 600 meters I start to get a lot of pain in my lowerback. I'm thinking it's just tightness because when I poke my lower back, it just feels so much "harder" than any of my other muscle.
I tried doing a lot of stretching on my back beforehand, but it hasn't really helped.
I also feel it in my back during squats (between sets mostly), but it's not so bad that it hinders me with my lifting.
I just ran yesterday, and I had to stop after 3/4 miles because the pain was so bad. I wasn't even out of breath, it's just the pain.
here's where I feel it occurring:
Wanted to know of if any of you had advice. I'm a bit weary of family physicians when it comes to my injuries, but if I need to I'll see him (and he'll probably just refer me to someone else).
