hi i was helping a friend move house and i had to lift some heavy boxes. then about 3 days later my left shoulder began to ache a little. i left it and just stretched a bit through out the week. then this week the pain became unimaginable, every time i cough or laugh or even breath in deeply, my shoulder kills. just wondering if i should go to the hospital or something. thanks! would appreciate the feed back :)

Hi I was lifting a heavy wooden box at work and I twisted and threw it on a pile. I felt a twinge in my left lower back, I have taken antiinflamitries but don t seem to work that well. I did it on Thursday afternoon and has become increasingly painful from saturday and now is very sore, hard to move when I sit and stand, I m an hour out of town

I have bending down a lot and wrapping items to move. I do have next pain from work by sitting in not such a good position and by a long drive back and forth to work. About a week ago I started to experience dizziness/light headiness when moving, especially when I bend to pick something with my left hand. I have experienced like a fast heart beat. But I have taken my b/p and pulse the pulse was only 74 and b/p 140/74. I do take meds for high b/p and high cholesterol. I do have a congenital pulmonic valve stenosis. Could I have injury my self with all that bending and lifting boxes doing packing???
