Weird pain !?!

I am 24. And 4 ft 11 / nearly 10 stone and recently I have had this strange shooting pain on very lower part of my back/base of back/spine. This seems to happen when sitting up right eg on bed, in the car, or even on the floor when crossed legged when building with toys with my 3year old.


Has anyone had this kind of pain before? Or got advice for it. It doesn't happen all the time its random but had if on and off for maybe two months now. Will be phoning my gp monday to make an appointment with them

Keep good posture as often as you can may help , ie no slouching , or awkward lifting .

Nah, NHS Direct can be used as an information service and for minor worries - it's 999 that is for emergencies.
NHS Direct website says 'We’re here for you whenever you have health worries and we have the knowledge and experience to give you real help and reassurance' nhsdirect.nhs.uk/Abo…ect

Edit: It also says: We’re not just here when you’re feeling unwell. NHS Direct can help you with much more. Including: information on a wide range of health topics, advice on looking after your health, such as how to quit smoking or start an exercise programme, and details of local doctors, pharmacists, dentists and support groups. nhsdirect.nhs.uk/en/…ect
