Forum Name: Spinal problems and back pain

Question: Young male with mid-right back pain


 jkalex05 - Tue Aug 07, 2007 1:47 pm

Hello thanks for your time. Im a 20 year old male. 2 days ago I woke up with mid-right back pain which I thought was due to a bad matress and sleeping wrong. However the pain has persisted for 2 days. Now im starting to think its something internal. Its just a real weird pain I have never felt before. The pain is somewhat persistant with it sometimes fading off for a bit when im still. Any movement stirs it right up. I feel also very stiff when I walk. Whats weird is I don't feel it when I lay down and sleep but as soon as I get up it hurts like crazy.

User avatar Hi Jkalex05,

Your symptoms may be due to a pulled muscle in your back. Strained muscles can cause pain for some time. Anti-inflammatory medicines can help some.

If your pain is not starting to get better in the next few days I would recommend you see your doctor for an evaluation.

Best wishes.
