Young and back pain
I am only 20 years old, female and have been struggling with lower back pain for about 5 years. I have not injured my back in any way and I have never been over weight. I exercise regularly and have done lots of research on the correct posture when exercising and in general. I have gone to a GP and a back specialist, neither could tell me what is wrong. Only that there is clearly inflammation visible. I can not live on anti-inflammatories for the rest of my life. The pain gets much worse during period. Please help
