Pain in the back

Hi friends, so I've been struggling with some pain in the back while doing the workouts. It happens mostly after some 40+ minutes of being standing up doing the scales, not before. If I take a seat, then it slowly fades away... If I stand up again to resume the workouts, it comes back.

It's been months since I'm experiencing this.. So I would like to know if any of you has experienced a smilar thing....

It's more or less around these areas I drew in yellow:

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    I have the same problem... 70% of the days when I sing/practice more than 1 hour.
    But I already have diagnosed (with MRT) back problems ... so I know where it comes from and how to live with it.

    Maybe you should also go and see a doctor just to make sure there is no bigger issue.

    Thanks, @shining
    So, you have experienced some kind of pain in your back while doing other activities in daily life besides standing up for an hour+ for singing, maybe even before singing... or is it only in this period of time while singing you realized the problem and went to the doc because of this?, I ask because in my case it only happens in this scenario. During other activities I'm totally fine...
    Thanks again

    Yes and No :)
    At the moment I only have this pain when I do my singing / workouts.
    Before Corona, I also had this when I was on a party/event where I was just "standing" ...

    And my "real back" problem (where I can not move for several days) occurs only after a certain wrong position or overload. (Like when its only when I worked bent forward.) Or when I really got psychlogical stressed.

    I would say, that you some kind of strain your muscels. Which leads to pain... because they get caught in that position and cause pain in the spine.

    Thank you @shining

    Sorry to hear that, sounds terrifyng! I hope you have been prescribed something to alleviate some of that serious pain when it happens..... can't imagine..

    Indeed, it feels like some strain, maybe posture although it's seems ok. I spotted Sara Loera in some of her socials lightly complaining of some pain in her back after some hours recording with Ken in the studio, so I feel that this may be a bit common in our community...

    Hopefully @doc_ramadani might be able to shed some light on this. Ive never experienced pain like you have both described.

    I've received a helpful perspective from @shining , though it's important to mention that in my case it's in the muscles, not the spine.. Specifically those 2 muscle areas I highlighted on each side of the spine

    i highly suggest the page https://www.diyjointpainrelief.com/ it is a free resource, and whenever i have some pain i use it to trat it. i have "cured" a tendonitis within a few sessions, twice in the past 3 years. i use red tiger balm as well for tendonitis, and the combo is a shortcut to healing it. maybe you have similar results with this? the theory is that it resets the muscles and tendons so they stop pulling and inflaming
