    Congratulation in losing weight. There will be less stress on your spine now. Please see the section under conditions “how to describe symptoms” to give a more thorough explanation of your symptoms.

    the pain starts after sitting for a period of time in my buttocks and on moving position a severe sharp pain shoots into the base of my spine,if i get to my feet and start walking around it eases of it also occurs in bed and i have to keep moving position, sometimes the pain is like a electric shock shooting through me it can be as severe as 8-9 on the pain scale

    Your pain could be originating from the discs, facets or the nerve roots. A thorough physical examination and imaging would be the next step. A rehab program then would be called for. If unsuccessful, diagnostic injections would be the next step. Medications can be helpful?
