2 weeks ago i was doing a handstand against the wall and started to bend my back while upside down...it started to hurt and now, 2 weeks later, when i try to bend backwards, i feel excruciating pain in my right side of the lower back. when i touch there, nothing hurts, but when i try to bend backwards, even slightly, its impossible.
the doctor said its either a fracture or an inflammation of a little bone on the side of the vertebrae (starts with an F) and refused to do an X-ray. I was told to wait for another month to see if it heals. so far, the pain hasnt eased even a little. sometimes, it hurts to walk because theres a slight tendencsy to bend backward a little bit when walking i guess.
I'm 24 and im freaking out at the thought that this may be permanent. if anybody can offer words of advice or suggestions on what i should do now and whether or not i should see another doctor, i would be so very grateful.
thank you for taking the time to read this.
