Back Problem

Well, when I woke up today my back felt a little better, not perfect, but better. Me being me, I decided to do a little light cleaning around the flat, then decided I would give my curtains a wash.

I'm stupid, had a feeling that taking down my living room curtains would lead to a painful reminder.... my word it hurt big time, shoulder went click, neck went crack and my back went 'take that you idiot'

I then realised I couldn't turn my head that far.  I phoned up NHS Direct who said put something warm around my neck and take some pain killers.

The other day I did go for an X-Ray of my back, but not the bit up by the neck which is killing me as I type this.

I feel physically sick at this moment in time.

Done a search online and found the following...

If you suffer from back pain or low back pain you already know how debilitating and painful this condition can be. In some cases, back pain can be so excruciating that it makes you feel sick and causes nausea or vomiting.

Some of the most common causes of upper and lower back pain include prolonged sitting, poor posture habits, repetitive strain, soft tissue damage, injury, spinal misalignment, muscular irritation, joint dysfunction, and a slipped or herniated disc.

However, bear in mind that not all instances of back pain are actually caused by a back problem. In fact, back pain and nausea are symptoms associated with a number of different medical conditions, all of which can refer pain to the back.
