It all started about 3 days ago when I felt like I needed to pop the left side of my back. Usually I have no issues doing this but I couldn't make it happen. The pain subsided for the next two days, but there was still a very dull pain, it just seemed tense.
Last night I bent down to put my shorts on when I came back up, I felt my back spasm I think or it locked up. Either way, it was a shooting pain and I was immobile for about a minute. Nothing popped, it was just a shooting pain. After awhile I was able to move a little bit more at a time. I've iced it and been taking ibuprofen, as well as stretching, but nothing has seemed to be helping. There's just been a constant pain and now I can't bend forward without it hurting. Thinking about going to urgent care but I'm not sure if they would even do anything. I just want to know why it happened. I don't think I've lifted anything heavy. I'm a teacher so the only thing that makes sense to me is the sudden change in posture over the past few weeks and the strain that's been putting on my body. Still doesn't seem right. Any ideas on what happened?
