Its been bugging me for a long time now, i hurt it deadlifting and couldnt move for like a week and had bad pain after that then it quieted down and now its back.its right above my butt like on my hip or pelvic bone or whatever. I dont think there is a disc where its hurt but I dont know, my doctor keeps saying its siatica. Does that bring a huge amount of pain when you bend or walk wrong?

i kinda had a pain similar to that and i always thought it was from deadlifting and squating but then my dad suggested it could be that i put my wallet in my back right pocket and sit on it all day. Next day got a front pocket wallet, after like a week the pain went away and i've had no problems since.

i had the same thing and the cause of mine was because my hips were supposedly to tight and it was turning my hips in the socket causing pain in my lower back.
i just got my hips stretched and stretched them myself for about a week and it made an amazing difference, so i suggest all u guys try that.
If that doesnt work then i would go to a chiro and get ur hips pulled...**** feels amazingAVI FROM DECEMBER 2008...yea i know, i really need a new one

I had something like that before. Was a pain that felt like it was at the top of my butt, somewhere in my back. Sharp pain. One side.
I think it was a pinched nerve. I stopped squatting and deadlifting for a month, and it doesn't bother me at all anymore.** I rape back 1k+**

Actually, squatting seems to make it worse, deadlifting seems to help it a little (along with heating pad).

the unaware in this thread is great. Low back pain is something that has many different causes/treatments therefore a quick response over the internet won't likely do much good. See a person that comes recommended by others in a similar situation, my suggestion would be find a good PT but then again I'm biased.
edit: these exercises seem to be effective for a sub-category of low back pain (especially with symptoms into the glut/thigh region) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBOp-ugJbTQ
edit edit: if you do have some symptom relief with these exercises completing them for 10 reps every hour for a few days is what I'd recommend doing, even if pain subsides.

The day after you go = feel amazing. If not then there might be something more seriously wrong with you then just a sprain or a pulled muscleUS Army Infantry Veteran

Same thing happened to a buddy of mine. He was doing dead lifts and hurt his back. Its been about 2 years and he cant lift weights or play sports anymore. I forgot what the doctor diagnosed him with but I think it was something to do with a nerve. You should get it checked out ASAP and make sure you don't do anything physical until the doctor okays it.

Could be multiple things:
Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction
Sciatica (can be caused by a few things)
Go to a physical therapist and do lots of stretching. It took me about 9 months to be able to even deadlift/squat again.
I bought an inversion table and it works wonders. Chiro kind of helped as well for immediate relief, but it feels semi-temporary.
The physical therapy helped, they showed me a few things I can do as well. You can generally diagnose yourself better by reading on the internet and watching youtube videos.
Maybe try rolling on a foam roller/tennis ball on your glute area. That provided immense relief for me (just be careful not to roll directly on a nerve like my dumbass did).ܐܬܘܪܝܐ ܚܕܬܐ

Ok...my turn to put my 2 cents in. I've messed up my back many many many times. usually it was because i lifted with my back instead of my legs. All i could really do was stretch alot, NSAIDS, and a heating pad. I also got some chicks to walk on my back.
And to the guy who said it was a pinched nerve, wouldnt it flare up when in the shower?VO2 Max=65 mL/(kg·min); Max Power Output=2250 watts; Max BP=465 lbs; B.S.

ive had this problem in my back when I used improper form on deadlifting, I couldn't lift for 6 months before the pain went away. It bothers me to sit down for long periods of time and ect.“To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don't grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown.

Try ibuprofin or some other anti-inflamation over the counter med.
You should go to a doctor to get an MRI or ultrasound. Once you know whether it is a bulging disk or a herniated disk then you can start some treatment. If you have a bulging or herniated disk you do NOT want to be seeing a chiropractor. As a matter of fact if you do have a herniated or bulging disk, a chiropractor will not adjust you becuase there is nothing they can do.
What you have going on is(likely), your disk is bulging & pressing on a nerve. What you need to accomplish to make the pain go away is to make the (inflamed/enlarged) nerve back away from the bulge. This can be accomplished several ways. First is using ibuprofin, second would be an epidural, third is to stop doing whatever is causing the inflamation to continue. This could be caused by sitting/working out/ doing crunches or any number of things depending on where the bulge is & how big it is. If the pain isn't down to your ankle/foot then you most likely just have a bulging disk. Many people have bulging disks without knowing it because the bulge isn't pressing agains a nerve. It only is noticable when it is pressing on a nerve.
You'll probably start with an X-ray & therapy. Then if the pain continues you'll need an MRI. The key to getting treatment quickly is telling the doctor the pain goes down to your foot/ankle. They don't mess around when they hear this & may go directly for an MRI.
