If your pain does not go away in about a month you should see your family doc and get some X-rays done. If your pain does get worse and is associated with difficulty in breathing you should see him right away.
on holiday July 2008, i got thrown into the pool and my back tightened and felt like i was having cramp in it. i went to the doctors and he said it was a tightened muscle and gave me some exersizes and paracetamol and ibroprufen. he said it should subside with in a couple of month but it is still very painful now and is sometime when it is very bad causes me breathing problems as breathing hurts my back. if i stretch i get cramp in my back and when it starts hurting im bed ridden sor days which is very annoying as i have exams in may. i dont know what i can do as nothing i have tried works. do you have any answers?
I previously had major problems with lower back pain. I would wake up in the middle of the night if I shifted in my sleep awkwardly and it would send shooting pain up my spine. There were times I would bend over to pick up a shoe or something off the ground and would be brought to one knee. This is my first post, so I don't want to come across as a spammer, but my doctor recommended something that changed my life. I have found no information on any of these forums in regards to it. I don't want to violate any board rules so I won't post the information, but I want to leave my email address if anyone is interested in the information. I can tell you that for the first time in 6 years that I'm pain free in my lower back.
Shoot me an email and I'll pass along the information: ***@****
