Thread Starter 

have always had lower back problems since i was sixteen years old> at sixteen i was heavily into tennis and my tennis coach said the pain arrived from problems with my serve and at i was too old to teach how to serve again> so pain continued> i was very active teenager up to twenties. then mid twenties noticced a huge reduction in the flexibility in my legs!! couldnt touch my toes and no matter how much i tired and how much i practised it just felt like legs muscles were gonna actually snap. over these years lower back pain got worse. generally aching. i went travelling a few years ago and decided to have a back massage whilst in south africa and the wholistic therapistist  said to me that did i no my hips werent aligned properly???? that one hip was slightly higher than the other> she pointed it out to me and fair enou. when u look at my back the dimples that are created by ur hips are about an inch uneven>. well that was about seven years ago!! and pain in me lower back is ten times worse...i get siatica about four or five times a week. but then noticed slight limp when i was very tired. also i wear baggy jeans and have noticed that me jeans cover more than one shoe than the other. i sleep on my back and cant sllep with any pillows otherwise the pain from me lower back is horrendous. feel like someone needs to take out me spine crack it straighten it and put it back in! havent got a clue what is wrong or what to say to doctor.. all i no is it s getting worse>>> any clues anybody!!! thanks

SEE AN ORTHOPEDIST---DOCTORS. ARE THE ONLY ONES ALLOWED TO DIAGNOSE---FROM HERE I CAN'T SEE YOUR LEGS---ONE MIGHT BE SHORTER THAN THE OTHER---92% OF ADULTS HAVE A SHORT LEG----42% HAVE A SHORT LEG GREATER THAN 10MM

SEE YOUR ORTHOPEDIST!

Mike is right.  There are 100 and one things that could be causing your pain and many of them are serious and as years go it becomes less likely the pain will respond to treatment.  What are you waiting for?  See an orthpedist, see a physio, see a chiro but see someone immediately for a full assessment probably including x-rays.
