Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (9 months ago):

  • I've been having a lot of lower back pain in the last several weeks with it tending to shoot down legs as well. It is most painful when lying down or sitting down. I exercise (run) every other day and refraining from doing that has not helped the pain. Back feels best when I'm up and moving around. Most mornings the pain is around a 7.
