03-04-04, 23:28
as people may of seen in my post, on the 1st of April, I appeared to of pulled a muscle in my back and left side and at first when it happened , i couldnt move much for nearly 45 mins without being in pain, but i managed to find some pain killers and it helped it a bit so i could go out to my appointment i had later in the morning, but since then my lower backs felt really tight and hard to move and i have a constant subtle pain in my lower side all the time and when i move too much it gets worse, especially in the mornings when I wake up and I have to move to get out of bed.

should I seek advice on it from a doctor http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Yep, sounds like a strain. your doctor will prescribe a gel or cream that will reduce the inflammation and kill the pain.

You'll likely be fine in about 2 weeks, but you'll have to be very careful for at least a year, or you could irritate it again. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Anything can cause it, but it usually happens after a long period of activity then a period of less activity or visa versa...

I woke up once with a massive pain in the back of my neck, it was killing for about 8 days and then it faded away. Dont have to worry to much about it, but yeah go to the Dr's just incase it's something a bit more serious http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
