Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
It looks like that you had acute disc rupture. This can happen during any injury to spine like fall, sudden bending or weight lifting. My suggestion to you is to meet a orthopaedic surgeon and get your MRI of the spine done. If it shows any disc herniation you can be treated according to condition of your spine.
