Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Since how long are you having this problem?

Is the area tender to touch?

Is the pain only in the back or does it go into your legs as well?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Please let me know.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Is the pain located on the back bone or the muscles on the side of the back bone?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So no pain or tenderness to touch in the muscles just on the sides of the back bone?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Is there any numbness or tingling in your legs? Or pain in your legs as well associated with this pain?

Customer: It feels like I need to twist the back bone
Customer: No
Dr. Shahzad MD :

the most likely possibility is that you may have stressed your backbone.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You can take over the counter pain medications like ibuprofen for this and this should settle in a few days time.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If your pain does not settle then you should contact your doctor as you may then need an x-ray of your back or MRI of your back.

Customer: Ok
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Strained your backbone**

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Should take one to two weeks to settle.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Does not sound like anything serious.

Customer: I can't sleep I can't move the body left or right as it hurts
Dr. Shahzad MD :

I understand, it will be tough for a few days, meanwhile you can take ibuprofen for the pain which will help relieve your pain.
