Thank you for responding to my message!
im not sure what else you need... i am 24 years old, i have never been to the gym, no other medical problem except pms. and my GP says i am doing some strenuous movements with my back which i have no idea what his talking about as i dont do exercise.
i just wake up in the morning &  my lower back &  spine area is swollen to the extent that i cant even sit against something without terrible pain - thank for the advise i will see the specialist &  have the test done asap!
