Having sharp pain in lower spine. Cheer injury in back. What should I do?

I recently went to the doctor for a cheer injury in my back. The pain was in my lower back when I moved or reached for something . They told me that it had something to do with my muscle, and something about scar tissue . But now I don't feel it in my muscle I feel a sharp pain in my lower spine . I am already out of cheer for 2 weeks . And I go back to the doctor tomorrow . Why did the pain move ? And what should I do ?

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

The pain you are suffering may be due to musculoskeletal pain, Spinal injury due to nerve compression, old scar tissue or due to renal or ureteric colic.
If the pain is moving from one site to other it can be due to renal or ureteric colic or due to different causes for both time. Usually spinal or nerve compression does not move and afects other structure (pain/numbness in lower limbs). If disc is affected and musculoskeletal pain only localised severe pain will be there. So take Tab. Aceclofenac with muscle relaxant chlorzoxazone twice daily, plenty of fluid and stretching exercises for lower back. Hope this will help you. If no improvement get one xray and examined by your orthopedician.

Hope I answered your question. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries. Wish you good health. Take care.
