Been having lower back and left side pain on lower rib cage for about 4 months now with no relief! Had x-rays done and nothing showed up, and Dr. put me on phy-therapy. Going in tomorrow for a MRI to see if anything shows up.I sit in a office for 8 hours a day and lift weights from time to time. Not sure if any of those two would of caused the problem?
Muscle problems do not show up on X-rays or MRI's so if nothing shows then it more than likely is muscular in nature. Try to use tennis balls or racquet balls and roll on the ground to see if any specific area hurts more than others. Then a doctor can give you a trigger point injection in that area to relieve the pain. Good luck, hope this helps!
