Hi, I bend down and when I got up I heard a crack in my lower back. I was in a lot of pain that also affected my left left. I went to the ER and they diagnose me with Lumbar Strain. They gave me ibuprofen and muscle relaxer. That helped a lot but I was still in pain. Yesterday, I felt pain that was somewhat like a electric shock in my lower back that shot up the spine. I started to get worried that it s not just a lumbar strain. Please answer me. I need to know if this is serious and if i have to go back to the ER.

Good Day I have been having a serious back pain for a while now. I play football at youth level and about 3-4times a week. On the lower right side of my back starts to hurt when i play football then it builds up gradually until i cant t walk properly. My back becomes very tight and there is a very sharp pain. This happened to me last year but it was only like for a week and then it went. Now this year it has been for about 4weeks now. Through last week i rested my back and didnt play at all. Did a lot of stretching every morning but it still hurts. Today during training the same back problem happened again.

I have a lower back pain that started yesterday morning that s a bit hard to explain. It almost feels like it s bruised but there isn t a bruise. There is a constant pain but it is much worse if I sit back against something or lay down, making it very difficult to sleep. It has started to make it painful to move or walk. Something that may need to be kept in mind is that I was drinking alcohol the night before I woke up with the pain. I m not sure if that s important or played a role in it. -Chelsey
