Ok, I'm not sure if this is TMS, ordinary back issues, or something more ominous. I'll try to keep this short. I was doing fine up until 4-5 months ago. While working out I would feel a pain in my lower back on the left side (possibly the quadratus lumborum). Usually I feel it by bending forward, but especially with side planks or back extensions. I assumed I might have hurt myself exercising so I cut back. Fast forward and it's still bothering me so I stop exercising completely, but it hasn't gotten better. If anything, it feels worse. My whole left side bothers me now when I move around. Sometimes I can feel it into my mid back and near the bottom of my front ribs (although the exact source is hard to pinpoint). The only time I don't feel anything is if I'm at rest. I've considered an enlarged spleen, however I don't have any problems eating large meals and I don't feel anything out of the ordinary when giving myself a self-test. I don't think it's kidney related because I don't have any problems going to the bathroom and there are no other symptoms. It could be anxiety, or at least my anxiety is making it worse. I know before when I was under heavy stress and anxiety everything would start to hurt. Here's what I do know. I went to the chiropractor and I'm putting 35 lbs more weight on my left side. My left shoulder is also slightly higher than my right. This makes sense consider I would always lean to my left while sitting, so much so that my chair now looks like the leaning Tower of Pisa. This leads me to believe is could be an alignment issue. Still, I'm always worried it could be something more serious. So what do you think? Any sort of feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
