Experiencing lower back pain

I am 22 years old and I have been experiencing lower back pain for the last two and a half months. I have never had major health problems since my childhood. I was very active and did a lot of sports. I have shooting pain in my lower back which radiates down towards the leg. I don't know what has caused this. A few months back, I had a 'wrick' feeling in my back when I cleaned and swept my full house in just one day. But I didn't bother that much. After that incident, I was having mild pain in that same low back when I was walking too fast, sitting in the same position etc. Until a couple of weeks, the pain was tolerable. But now the condition has become worse.

I have decided to go to a corporate wellness clinic Toronto( http://www.physiomed.ca/about/corporate-wellness/ ). I don't understand what's going on and I am afraid if something serious has happened to my back. The pain is disturbing me to do my daily routine activities. Has anyone here experienced this situation? What have you done to relieve the pain? Please share.

Thanks!

    I would advise you to get a second opinion before you meet the acupuncture service provider. Since you are pregnant and the treatment consists of piercing by a needle on certain points, it should not affect your baby. Hence a second opinion will help you a lot.

    It sounds very similar to a problem that I have/had in the past. It's called sciatica. I would mention it to my OB/GYN to talk about treatment options before anything else. If it is the same thing, I know how painful it can be and I am so sorry to hear you are going through it. Good luck and feel better!
