I was sitting half bent while washing the clothes. There were few buckets full of water one over the other.
I got my back hurt when I tried to bring one of the buckets down. My body has tilted a bit towards left. I am unable to move and walk. It is paining a lot. Usually after work I do will have a slight pain in my back. But today it has increased so much that I cannot even move. Please tell me a medicine and what precautions should I take ? Today I have taken Flexon-MR but it did not reduce the pain.
Hi, Welcome to icliniq.com.Actually, you are very young to have persistent back pain and this episode appears to be an acute exaggeration of this pain. Cause of back pain can be due to a muscle strain or a small herniation of an intervertebral disc followed by lifting heavy weight. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias, etc., then you can start with following recommendations initially for a period of two weeks.
We will observe you for the next two to three weeks to see how you respond to this conservative management protocol. Normally, the pain in the back along with the muscle spasm will subside in next five to seven days if you take your medications and observe precautions as advised. If you are not feeling better, then we might have to get some investigations like dynamic x-ray of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation.

Avoid acute forward bending, lifting of any heavy weight, etc., till the time your pain subsides.Regarding follow up:
