Heard a "pop"

This morning I heard and felt a "pop" in my low back while I was kinda bending sideways at the waist while reaching for something. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this before. I KNOW I should not have bent sideways like that-I just forgot for a second. To make matters worse....I was NOT wearing my brace-only because it was first thing this morning and I was about to put it on. I do not want to call the doc about this-his office is 1 hour away and I was just there on wednesday. Do you think that I could have messed something up that easily? I am not in any more pain than before it happened-just kinda sore. I hate living in fear-always worried. Will I ever get over this?!


  • Is, do you feel any pain or anything out of the ordinary?

    The paranoia goes away, but it takes a while.

  • Hi hun,
    Most of us have done it at one point or another.
    I always here weird noises in my back. Especially last years surgery I would roll in bed and feel pop. It ended up being nothing.
    Like "C" said if there is not increased pain out of the norm.
    If you do not feel right all day today etc I would call, they may give you info over the phone what to look for etc.
    I personally would just ice and rest today.
    Let us know how you make out O:)
    Use that grabber girlfriend!!!!!! ;) They have longer ones at places like walmart etc with suction cups that work better . The ones at the hospy are cheap and not very strong. They are about 20 bucks if your able to get one.
    Hubby threw mine out this summer darn him X( Its got the oxy clean guy on the front if I recall right.

  • and see how you are tomorrow. I echo what Terri has said that you will hear all sorts of yukki noises.

    It was probably nothing so unless the pain gets worse try not to worry about it.

    Blessings Sara O:)
  • Thanks Guys! I have been hearing poping noises coming from my sacrum and upper back but this is the first time I heard it in my lumbar! I do NOT have any more pain than usual-Thank God! It just scared me. I am guessing if I REALLY messed up something-I would be hurting! I am so glad that I have these boards to turn to-no one else can relate or really knows what is normal and not. Thanks for the replies!
  • It feels like joints popping, no pain. Feels like from several joints in my lower back area and hips. I'm going to my OS this week and will ask him what's up with this! No pain, just lots of popping. I suspect it's from the compressed disks.

  • Shay, I have had several pops in the last 7 weeks in the lumbar, didn't hurt so I didn't worry. My lumbar used to crunch with every little movement, so is much improved. Sue
