Basically i pulled it or something when stretching after a workout, i was touching my toes and felt a jolt of pain in my lower back.
It happened friday, i've lifted everyday since then but today just did abs and wasn't really bothering me. Also done stairmaster cardio each day.
Usually in the mornings is when i'll feel the pain jolt, i reached down to pickup a newspaper on saturday and felt it. THen today i was brushing my teeth, bent over in the same position for 10 seconds or so and felt wicked pain.
I took a muscle relaxer before bed last night and slept really well, woke up and thought i felt good up until i brushed my teeth.
I'm gonna lay off weights for 2 days or so maybe more, should i lay off the cardio as well? Should i alternate ice/heat....i don't really have anyone to massage it anymoer
Should i even try stretching my lower back or just leave it be
