Severe lower back pain
I'm an avid fan of wieghtlifting. Last May, I bent over for stretching and then a sudden sharp pain hit my lower back. It went away after several weeks but not 100%. Then just yesterday when I'm performing deadlift, the pain hit again, only this time it's worse. Sitting, lying down, getting up, bending over, walking. Basically every move I can feel the pain. I'm wondering if it's serious or not. I rate the pain 7/10. I can still move normally. But it hurts a lot. The pain is exclusive on lower back area.

Hello there..... I went through your query..... Lift smart. Avoid heavy lifting, if possible, but if you must lift something heavy, let your legs do the work. Keep your back straight — no twisting — and bend only at the knees. Hold the load close to your body..... Exercise. Regular low-impact aerobic activities — those that don't strain or jolt your back — increase.p strength and endurance in your back and allow your muscles to function better
