Sudden sharp pain in the mid back area, frequent urge to urinate, difficulty in walking. No relief with hot and cold compresses. What could it be?

I was in bed and twisted to turn off my lamp when I had a sudden sharp pain in my mid back area, also have had the constant feeling of having to urinate for the last 4 days. I have never felt pain like this in my life, could barely drag myself to the shower, Hot shower nor ice has helped. I m 35 and have no past problems with any of these symptoms.

Hi Kenny,

You seem to have injured your back muscles. A lot of the muscle fibres in each muscle are torn to cause this kind of pain. You should have seen a physician for an Xray of the back. You need prescription drugs which are muscle relaxants. You will get better in two days. In addition a course of antacids are also required.

Because of the pain, there is sympathetic activity happening which causes the bladder to contract more than usual.
