Could this be a muscle spasm??

This all started about 3 years ago from working. I would be doing a lot of standing work at a golf course. At the end of a long day of standing and working I felt a twinge in my back. I don't even know if that's a word but it almost feels like a very thin fine line in my back that is being pinched in a way. There is no real pain to it but it's enough to stop what I'm doing. It ONLY happens while I am standing and reaching out in front of me. When I am standing and reaching out to clean the golf clubs this first happened and it just happened again tonight. It doesn't happen often. I first experienced this about 3 years ago and I probably experienced it 3 more times since. But tonight it came back. Again, it only happens while I am standing and reaching out. Tonight I was standing and reaching out with both hands to open a frozen pizza box (I know bad eating habit lol) when it occurred. It's a very fine line. Almost as thin as say a guitar string. It's like a very tight guitar string that is being plucked. Strangely enough I have read about the erector spinae muscle fibers being like guitar strings but I don't know if it's as thin as what I am referring to and if this can somehow be my problem. I am guessing it's my erector spinae muscle going in spasm and the feeling is either the very tight muscle fiber or a nerve that is passing by is being irritated by this spasm. Any thoughts??

Re: Could this be a muscle spasm??

Dave.. why not go and get yourself checked out by a doctor?? Back pain is something you should always pay attention and listen to. It may just be a muscle issue and then may be a much more complex spine issue. Worth getting checked guy. Take care. tammy
