I am 14yrs old, and I need answers..... I was in an accident one week ago involving someone landing on my head and leaving me in pain. I visited the doctor and he said the muscles along my spine were in spasm. I went camping over the weekend and it was sore but bearable. The day after I came back I was getting these jerks every 30-40 seconds, but they got worse and more frequent... The next day they were really bad and a lot more severe. I was literally being bent over by these jerks, they were very painful so I stayed home from school. It seems that the only way to stop them is to lie down and stay still. I need help because it is very sore and my parents think I am putting it on to skip school or something, because they cannot find any situations where this has happened to others, I need help please
It is common to have spasms in your spine after an injury. If its now more than a week after your injury and the spasms are continuing and/or you are in severe pain, my suggestion would beto head back to your dr. For a more thourough exam and possibly muscle relaxers.
