Suffering from major upper back pain, what can i do ?

Hi my name is James, I am twenty five years old, and work a full time job as a Produce Assistant Manager at Randall s/Safeway. I m constantly moving and working, I do try to use proper back procedures, lifting with my legs, however late last night I started feeling a bit of strain in my back, when I woke up this morning I was completely unable to move, my back hurt so bad, I could not go to work, the only thing I have been able to do after use of advil , and aspercreame, is move enough to use the bathroom, and sit in front of my computer. Any ideas of what I may have done?

due to prolong strerss n string u r back muscles hv become stiff .. to release the stress n tension.. take adequate rest.. even sitting in front of a comuputer is a strain.. avoid it for some days..
u can take rhustox 200 .. one dose in the morning and second dose at night for 2 days its a homeoapthic medicine.. if symptoms still pesisit then consult ur doctor..

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Any back pain develops due to some sort of strain on the back , which could be acute or a chronic cause .I will give you some tips on this

1.Never life heavy weights if you are already suffering from back pain

2. Use hard supports for your back and hard mattresses, instead of going for soft cushions , this helps a lot.

3. The posture you sit in while work/ when on computer/watching T.V is also very important , make sure you have aback support always.

4 Whenever you have pain, you could take the pain killers.

5. If you experience pain and feel that you cant move around , the best cure is from taking complete bed rest for at least 3 days , avoid going to work.

Wishing you good health
