Back pain question...

Hi everyone,
I have never had back problems, but recently my back is killing me! One reason I think is my bed mattress (lower back pain). Yesterday, though, my mid-back started spasming and has been constantly, evertime I move! All I can figure out is I strained it carrying my heavy book bag. I believe it is all muscle pain. I tried soaking in a really hot tub with epsom salts last night, it helped while I was in the tub, but when I got out it started to spasm again. My question is......should I give it a few more days and see a doctor, or just keep up with heat? Is there much a doctor can do if it is muscular pain? I need to do something.....it hurts!!.....and it's putting me in a crabby mood, so not only would I appreciate any feedback, my fiancee would too! LOL

Re: Back pain question...

Did you run this past your ob? And definitely get a backpack on wheels.
