I could really use some help. I have been suffering with back pain from probably around 15 years old and I am now 24 and have been unable to diagnose or treat my back pain after dealing with multiple doctor's and specialists.
I'll start from where I think it all started. I am a snowboarder by career and the love of the sport. When I was about 15 years old I had a bad fall where I landed on the mid of my back over a rail in the snow park. Ever since than I have dealt with chronic pain in my mid to lower back and "tight" hips. The pain in my back is normally a dull numbing pain but sometimes it does flare up into a more piercing pain. I have a fairly high pain tolerance but it is still enough to wake me up in the night. Laying down regardless of orientation and bending over for extended periods seem to aggravate it. Also I have noticed that eating to much or having to go to the bathroom bad also seems to put pressure on it and aggravate it more.
I am healthy and exercise often. I have tried yoga and multiple back stretches to elleviate my pain but nothing seems to help. I have seen 3-4 doctor's and specialists now who have all sent me for x-rays, ultrasounds really any test you can think of and so far all the doctor's have told me is there is nothing wrong with me as far as they can see. I have also seen a chiropractor who said I am maybe slightly out of allignment but nothing that should be causing me this much pain. I am really starting to be at my wit's end trying to figure this out and I really don't want to end up on pain meds just to get through the day. Some help trying to figure this out would be greatly appreciated and all questions are welcome.
