Lower back pain that radiates to thighs and moves around

I have a doctors appointment but not till later this month but want to see if anyone can help me get in the right direction in trying to figure out what i have.

I have had lower back pain that radiates to my hips butt and thighs for about 3 weeks now. I am in my late 20s and have never in my life had back pain.

the first symptoms came on a day where I spent a long time masturbating with a vibrator and had several orgasm (tmi sorry but might be related). I think i curve my back when i orgasm and after I got up from the bed i felt slight uncomfortableness in the right side of my lower back, which later in the day turned into intense pain in the lower right side of my back. The back pain lasted about 3 days then disappeared,

About 3 days later, I started feeling slight lower back pain in the middle of my lower back which i didnt pay much mind too...then later that night i started feeling pain in my left butt cheek. The next day the pain in my left butt cheek was intense and I have since been experiencing pain in my lower back, hips, left butt cheek, right butt cheek. The pain travels around and never stays in one spot. Some days i will have intense pain and weakness in the hips. Some hours i will feel pain in my left butt cheek or thigh and then it will go away, then i will feel pain in my right butt cheek and thigh and then it will go away. Sometimes i can walk okay, and sometimes the pain is so intense i can't walk at all. Sometimes it hurts to sit or lie down. sometimes it hurts to cough or sneeze and i have to bend my thigh that is in pain towards me to prepare myself for a cough or sneeze. Stretching my back out by bending forward with a straight back while sitting or putting my ankle on my opposite thigh while sitting tends to lesson the radiating pain.

Anyone have any idea what this might be?

I don't know if this is related but I was sick with what I assumed was a cold right before the back pain set in. I had a sore throat, cough, and pink eye. All of that is gone now though.

Also, not sure if this might be related but, i went through a bought of depression right before i got sick with that cold where i basically did not eat for a week and then ate nothing but fast food for about a week and a half (which is not at all my normal diet)

Hi and welcome to the support group -

You should make an appt to see your primary doctor and let them know what is going on. If during their exam believe there is something going on with your spine then I would see a spine specialist either Orthopedic or Neurosurgeon Spine Specialist - they can order tests (MRI, CT Scan, X-rays etc) to see what is going on..

A spine specialist is the only one that can read rest results accurately and give you a diagnosis and go over treatment options.

Hi there,

Absolutely right you should see your doctor to rule out a medical condition. It is most like to be unexplained back pain in which case you will not need medical treatment.

I suffered back pain for years but live pain-free now. Train regularly with mindful exercise to improve posture, circulation, stretching and relaxation.

It works.

Good luck!
