Pain in lower back, heard a loud noise, severe pain, no apparent bruise. Cure?

Hi, i sneezed this morning and my lower right back started to hurt very badly. It felt like something got injured on the inside of my body. I heard a loud noise from my lower right back, i checked to see if there was a bruise there but there was not any sign of one. I have very severe pain and I m thinking of going to a hospital if i do not get better. Anything you can help me with doctor?

Thanks for posting your query

It seems you have developed muscle strain over lower back following sneezing, due sudden jerk and pressure. To reduce pain and for better healing-
Do hot fomatation at site
Apply musle relaxant gel 2-3 times a day
Take antiinflammatory drug like ibuprofen to reduce pain and inflammation.
Avoid forward bending and heavy weight lifting. And rest well.
Hope this will helps you

Thanks for writing to us.
After sneezing, the pain in the back could be due to a muscle sprain caused by the sudden jerk. Most of the tom es the pain subsides on doing a hot fomentation and applying a local analgesic gel over the affected area.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Allergist and Immunologist Dr. Sujoy Khan's  Response
You have developed a bad sprain following the sneeze that happens due to sudden increase of intraabdominal pressure and that extends to soft tissues.
You need to take a non-steroidal antiinflammatory with a spasm relief medication, something with Aceclo-MR or paracetamol with chlorzoxazone to lower the spasm.
Take this after food maximum twice a day for 3- 4 days.
Hope this helps.
