Discussions that mention ibuprofen

Back Problems board

Hi, of course I can't diagnose you, but it could be a muscle pull/strain or possibly a disc herniation. It sounds like you're probably having spasms, which can be very painful. Do you have any pains going down your leg at all on the side that hurts?

In the mean time you might want to take some ibuprofen or aleve and try ice or heat over the area to see if that gives you any relief.
