This is lengthy but I really need help. Please read.
My boyfriend as severe upper back and lower back pain. He is only 17 and we have no clue what's going on and we're not sure the doctors do either. They've ran a X-ray on his back and neck and say that he has a little bit of scoliosis in his lower back but it shouldn't cause too much pain. Other than that we have no answers. Just a few weeks ago he caught the flu and was unable to move off the couch due to excruciating pain in his back. He tried heat and ice alternated and nothing seemed to help. Although with the flu, he wasn't puking luckily. So the weekend went by and he got back to his normal self. Could walk and move around but he still had pain in his lower back that causes him to be worried. He's always had this weird pain. It started 2 years ago when he got sick with the flu and couldn't walk or even hardly get up to use the bathroom and ever since then he's had pain. Just tonight he rode up to practice as we live 40 mins away in the middle of no where and began to feel this pain which caused him to not be able to walk or even sit up. It hurt so bad he cried for most the the way home. He got home and Laid on a flat surface and began to alternate ice and heat which did no good. He sat up and bean to throw up and is now in so much pain he can barely talk. Please help!!!!!!!
