So im not sure exactly what the problem is, but my back is hurting quite a bit. Ive always had a little bit of a back problem, but nothing like this. There is also a shooting pain down my leg, so i cant stretch my left leg or it hurts my leg and back like hell. What im really asking is 1. If lifting weights doesnt really interfere with it, should i keep doing it until i see a doctor and 2. What are some ways i could help my back (usually stretching helps alot the day that i stretch, but it feels even more painful the next day)

OM MANI PADME HUM
You say you have a bit of back problem? How bad is it normally?
What have you done recently that aggrevated it? (DL,Sqt. etc.) How would you rate the pain on a scale of 0-10?
Most Dr. recommend you go in for a visit if the pain dosent improve within (3) days...(w/heat & rest) Esp. if you have numbness or tingling going down the leg as you stated. I wouldnt train hvy. until it either improves or you see a Dr.
