I have this sharp pain in my lower back. Every once in a while i get a sharp pain down my left leg. Lately it's when I sit for long periods of time or while driving. I have gone to the doctors a while back she said it might be a pinched nerve, maybe a slip disk she wasn't sure and put me on a anti-inflammatory for 10 day it didn't make the pain go away but before I had to have help getting up in the morning and while sitting i had to get up very slow. I just don't want to waste more time and money on something that isn't going to make it go away. Any advice helps.
