Back pain, difficult to walk, stand or sleep on back. How to erase the pain?

I have sharp middle back pain due to jumping. I think it was due to how I stretched my arms too far back to get momentum before the jump because I landed correctly. I started feeling pain a few minutes after the jump. I can barely walk, stand up or sleep on my back. I am only comfortable when I m laying down facing down. What can I do to ease the pain?

Thanks for query,
It seems that you might have heavy strain while jumping.
It is possible that you might got some injury to your spines giving rise to this problem.
Go for X ray lumbar spine to rule out any injury or soft tissue injury.
Take rest,
Do back extension exercise.
Take some analgesic,anti inflammatory and muscle relaxant medicine.
Ok and bye.

Pulmonologist Dr. Arnab Maji's  Response
thank u Mr Green for consulting us in HCM
ur history is quite good
but i need to clarify certain things
probably u have some trauma on spinal column
if the trauma is not so serious then the cause of pain ll be paravertibral muscle spasm the pain of which ll be non-radiating...if the cause is this then u need not to worry...take some rest...take analgesic and muscle relaxant like..brufen- MR twice a day and hot will be quite ok in 3-4 days
if there is cord compression with protrusion of disc spaes or vertebral fracture then it is serious condition and pain ll be radiating in this case....for that u need to have an MRI spine both T1 and T2 weighted image and require surgical management
hope for the best
but do MRI immediately or a screening digital spinal x-ray
thank u
