    I'm currently going through a similar pain, had it for almost a year now but got severe in nov. I've been off work for 6 weeks with it, now on restricted duties (I'm a copper) try doing some lower back exercises and stretch. I'm waiting for a scan at the moment as Doctor's and specialists have no idea what it is. Are you getting any pain in the leg?

    Core exercises (crunches, pilates stuff like that) can help with back problems. They worked for me. Latest edition of C+ has an article with a suggested routine.
