Oh Snap, literally

Hi all,

Something happened today that I haven't ever had and it's left my lower back feeling weird. I was sitting at my desk talking with my boss when out of the blue, it felt like someone tasered my lower back. I felt like I was getting shocked for about 5-10 seconds. It then went away but ever since then, my back feels weak, my legs are stiff and when I lay down, it throbs big time.

It feels like it's L5'ish. I'm fused L4-S1. I don't know if this is just a huge muscle spasm like no other or what the heck is going on.

Any suggestions?

  • are you still having weakness in the legs? I would watch that, but in the meantime, try some ice and heat, alternating, to see which one helps......or better yet, one of those heat patches might help if it is simply a muscle spasm..
    I hope that is all that it is.
  • Hi Sandi,

    It's better today, but sleeping last night was difficult. I've been taking it easy today to see if it will go away with rest. Hopefully, it was just a quick zinger.
