I have kind of strange lower back pain. It’s sharp and instant and lasts for sec. Its happening whenever I extend my spine(bend backwards) and when I am coming back from extended to natural. Its really painful and frustrating. My lower back feels tight when I am extending also.
I am afraid it’s disc pushing nerve but I can’t get it scanned until summer. I still train though. I have no problems with any lifts except Bench press. It’s not about weight because I have pain with empty bar same as 90%max. I know I should extend with my upper back but as soon as I lay on bench I get that sharp pain for like sec. The worst thing though is getting up after set because I get that stabbing sharp pain which goes instantly but my lower back feels tight after.
I can do overhead press without any problem by keeping my glutes and abs flexed which kind off keeps my back natural.
I also have problems with cat camel exercise(stretch). It feels good flexing but as soon as I go to extension stabbing pain…
I have this problem for quite some time.
I was told to stop lifting and take painkillers and I can’t get MRI until summer so i am pretty much fucked.
Would appreciate anyone’s advice/experiences with this.
