About a week ago I noticed that the right side of my lower back started to get really sore. I've had knots in my back before and this pain felt similar to that of a muscle knot. Bending foreward at the hips was very painful and after getting a professional massage a few days after the pain started, it only became worse.
Applying heat and rubbing the sore area did help but now a week later since the pain started, this doesn't seem to help and the pain is only worsening. Now, the pain is more of a sharp pinching pain and I am noticing that, compared to the smooth lower back muscle on the left side of my back, there is a small bump on the lower right side of my back.
The pain is just to the right of my spine and I am able to wiggle the lump.
I am going to see my doctor next week but should I get another massage before then? Im just not sure if this is merely a pulled muscle or something more serious. Has anyone heard anything like this before?
