How Can Pain In The Lower Back And Difficulty In Bending Be Treated?

I was dry heaving this morning and believe I pulled something in my lower back.It is a very sharp and quick pain, but very relevant. I am not able to bend backwards to much as forwards? I am wondering what I can do at home as I do not have time to take off to look into this right now.

Hi,

This is common to have a backache. It's mostly because of muscle stretch. Though it's not serious yes it can be very painful.


Generally, we advise applying some heat pads, and massage with warm oil. Besides you also can take some over the counter painkiller like Ibuprofen.

However, if the pain is too severe, or you have weakness in your legs you should go to your doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
