approx. 2 wks ago I was about to stand up and got a pain similar to a charlie horse pain in my lower left back, just up from my belt. it mostly went away in about 10 minutes. about 2 days later getting out the shower bent to dry lower leg and it hit again. this time it stayed. I've been taking 2 Aleive aafter breakfast and then ine the evening. this seems to help but with various degrees of relief. Sometimes the pain starts down my hip and into upper theigh.I am a 62 yr male that has had a job that requires sitting at work bench avg.65% of time. I have in past had some stiffness in lower back especially in morning.
