I lifted a very heavy object today and I heard

I lifted a very heavy object today and I heard a loud pop and then draining of strength and went to my knees, all fours. Was taken to hospital on a stretcher as the pain was intense. Hospital x-rayed back with a scan. They saw no injury. Discharge me with three medications and a sheet with the advice with ice and heat. How long will this take to recover.? It hurts like the dickens. My diagnosis from the hospital with muscle spasm. I never had a muscle spasm like this.

I lifted a piano that got a wheel caught on a door jam. It was approx over 500 pounds. As I lifted I heard a loud pop and buckled my knees. Severe pain in mid lower back with radiation across both flanks that was a severe burning sensation. I took 4 advil and used Icy hot. Pain is still pretty bad with radiation across both sides. Did I tear something ?

While on vacation, I lifted a too-heavy suitcase, heard a loud pop in my mid back and felt an odd pain. Then trying to get up from a sleeping position, found it extremely painful to move, like getting electrocuted. Had MRI and contrast MRI, have compression fracture on T11, and the T5 & T7 show dialation with benign fluid (no tumors). I am still feeling pain 5 months later, and have been told it will never get any better, it will only get worse. Is there anything I can do to make it better?
