So tonight I had another (it has happened about 4 or 5 other times) episode of my back seizing up. I hadn't done anything out of the ordinary, I was just sitting on a couch and I went to stand up and BAM it happened.
I have had plenty of back spasms, and this feels completely different. It only happens when Im going from sitting to standing Ive noticed. Honestly my first initial reaction is "Oh my god my back is breaking" because that is what it feels like. Of course after a second I know its not breaking but my mind jumps to that because of the pain/way it feels. Its weird. Its in my low back and it feels like it literally locks together and I can't stand up or sit back down..but even stopping and staying in the position I get stuck in is bad...it just stays locked up and like one very long intense spasm or something.
Like I said I have had hundreds of regular spasms but this is different. Has anyone else had anything like this? Or know what it is? I don't know if its muscle or what. It feels hard..if that makes sense..like bone or something locking up. Its 10x worse than a regular spasm. After I get my senses when it happens i usually fall back onto the couch/chair and then end up having regular spasms.
Any ideas or experience with this?
