28 year laborer humbly seeks info about protruding vertebrate
Lately I am experiencing pain I cannot ignore in my neck, and pretty much my whole spine. The worst of all the pain, is in my mid-lower back, I have two vertebrates protruding farther out than all the rest of them. When I touch them with my hand, and press on them, the pain is immediate, burning and intense. I tried laying on a flat floor surface, in the hopes of possibly pressing them back in, and it only made it worse. The two protruding vertebrates, are bout 4 vertebrates apart from one another. When I stand and stoop over while standing, there is a horrible shooting pain like a tazer. What could this possibly be? Am I in danger of becoming permanently injured? What can a poor man like me do to help himself? I'm afraid to be quite honest. I certainly do not want to injure my spinal cord. I have worked very hard my whole life. I have lifted huge blocks of wood by bending over and lugging them around, without proper form. That was my very last job as a matter of fact. I'm afraid that that last job of tree-cutting has taken a toll on my back. I've had back pain for years, but never like this.
