lower back

Hi, everyone. I have crunching and grinding in my lower back. I can hear it as well as feel it. I feel severe pressure and deep pain underneath the crunching in my lower back. This is a recent issue as I have not had time to Andreas my physician just yet. This problem is very concerning and alarming for me. Has anyone had similar problems, or perhaps know what this may be caused from? Please advise, thank you and God Bless.

Hello Pearl,

Welcome to MedHelp's Pain Management Forum. I'm sorry to hear about your pain. Ouch!

"Crunching" and "Grinding"  in your spine is usually your vertebrae. It sounds like the cushion (discs) between them may be dry and/or or lost their proper structure. It can be very painful. I have similar in my cervical spine.

Obviously only your physician and some scanning can tell the actual story. I encourage you to make an appt and get this checked out. Once a proper diagnosis is made you'll know how it can be treated.

Please keep in touch and let us know how you are doing.

Take Care,
