Back Pain Symptoms

Share This Article

Common symptoms of back pain experienced by people under the age of 60 include: leg pain and numbness (usually a result of a herniated disc), lower back pain aggravated by movement (a common symptom of degenerative disc disorder and osteoarthritis), and low back pain that worsens while standing. Individuals with minor back pain may be experiencing the earliest symptoms of arthritis. Osteoarthritis can begin in those as young as thirty, and may progress for many years before symptoms appear.

The types of back pain experienced by older adults may include increased lower back pain, stiffness in the morning and evening, and pain that radiates down the legs when walking or standing upright.
