Sounds like he has pulled a back muscle. Or strained it. Keep alternating warm water packs..you can even use a ziploc baggie. Use for 10 -15 min. Then use a cold compress..(Ziploc bag if needed.)

If he is neausiated, that is normal with back pain/injury. As well as the pain shooting down his leg. My back was out for over 1 week.

Only way to tell if he is in real bad shape is........CALL THE AMBULANCE!

Tell him it's for his own good. Period.

Good luck,
Snooze

Sounds like Sciatica which is pressure on the sciatic nerve, it takes its time but it will go , some theorys think its caused by a virus,Take some Ibebrufen painkillers , they will help, go to the Doc if you need stronger,meds and to get it checkled out,  he wont die of it but it does hurt  a lot. Rest and more rest.

I recently had sciatica, and it sounds exactly like what your boyfriend is going through.

the doctor made me stretch it out for a while, and gave me anti -inflammatories (ibuprofen,  asprin, motrin, etc) to take. Stretching it made the difference.

If he is literally unable to stand the stretching, then he needs to see a doctor.

also, could be muscle spasms, give him gatorade, and make him eat bananas lol.
