Hello, last Tuesday my wife went to tickle me....as i hate being tickled i jumped out of the way sideways to get away.....but i lept into a wall and felt a pop in the middle of my spine. There was a small pain for maybe 5 minutes, then i was fine. But then when i woke up the next day i was in so much pain i could move at all without intense pain all throughout my entire back....so bad i couldnt even move my arms or stand. Well it has been several days now since and i can walk and move, but i have a constant pain where i felt the pop.....and when i move...even just a little i feel pretty bad pains all over my back and sometimes my sides and sternum. I have to walk kinda hunched and to the side a little because when i try to stand straight it really hurts.

i am just wondering what do you think happened to my back and if it will heal on its own? Thank you!

  • I suggest that you get into a medical facility asasp.
    If you can call your pcp and get in right away or go to an urgent care. You could also go to an ER.

    They will know how to check your reflex's and see if you would benefit from an MRI/CT scan etc. They will probably give you a steroid dose pack and some pain meds as well.

    It is very possible that you injured yourself quite seriously or that the steroids will work magic for you you. Hope for the magic.

    Let us know what happens.

  • I agree with Julie on this. You may just have a simple sprain, but too you could have torn a ligament or worse. They also may give you a muscle relaxer or whatever they deem once the results of the tests they give you. Let us know how it goes! Sounds painful for sure!!!!
