Brief Answer:
Could be muscle spasm, consult an orthopedic surgeon , if required.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX, I am Dr Gopal Goel , Orthopedic Surgeon.
What you have developed probably is spasm in your back , causing feeling of 'stuck'. Hope you had not fallen. You might be developing fever as per your body reaction of tiredness .
Start pain killers ,muscle relaxants and get an x ray of the affected area. If you don't develop fever and don't get any relief in few days - then consult an orthopedic surgeon.
Thanx for the question. Please feel free to ask any other question.

Hello Doctor,

I have not generated any kinds of fever, just feels like need to lie down and rest. I also took water with pinch of sugar in it. I am prediabetic so don't want to consume more of that. Is this tiredness because of the spasm? Will the pain killer help here, I am not a fan of taking pain killers as am not sure if it causes any side effect.

Brief Answer:
Start the treatment as adv.above.

Detailed Answer:
Hi ,
I think that a combination of medicines as I have mentioned may be able to help in the muscular spasm that comes from such conditions. Start the treatment and try it for a few days.
No major side effects are expected if take only for few days. If you feel gastritis then you can take antacids along with these medicines.
Hope for all the best
