    Strange back pain (1.5k reps)

    So, after being in the gym,getting home and sleeping for 8-9 hours, i woke up with terrible back pain. This is the place where it hurts:


    I didn't feel any pain in the gym at all, things i did, which I'm not doing normally during my workout: swinging the 30kg dumbbells while standing to do shoulder press and doing narrow pull ups.
    The pain didn't get any better for a week, I stopped going to the gym, and went to the doctor, he is clueless and gave me some diclofenac, which didn't really help either (maybe reduced the pain to some degree), one month later i still have the pain and i don't even know what it is or what caused the pain.

    Went to the gym today after a month, all tho the pain just reduced slightly, didn't feel any back pain during exercising, but i feel it again a bit stronger after i came home. It does NOT hurt any more or less when i move my hand,bend over or move my neck. I do NOT have breathing issues and it's definitely not spinal. There is no sharp pain at all. It sometimes hurts when i sit uncomfortably.

    If i keep just avoiding gym, I'll lost most of my hard gained gains and I'm not sure it will stop huring any soon.
    Any help is welcomed.

    What should I do? Any ideas about what caused the pain? How long should it last.

    Will rep for any helpful advice.

    It's a common location for pain. You may have slept in an awkward position at night. Stretching the area will help, as will foam rolling (or massaging the area with a tennis ball etc.). The pain should alleviate over the next few days.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    I maybe didn't write it clear enough,sorry, but the pain is there for 25 days already and the recovery rate is at zero or really slow, i massaged it for a few days and it didn't feel comfortable.

    Go see a doc or a physical therapist.

    It may be built up muscle tension that needs to be released (ART - Active Release), or something else.

    what kind of doctor did you go to?
    If he could not find out the problem, its his responsibility to refer you to another doctor. Go to an orthopaedic if you didn't.

    I'll second the tip with the foam roller. In addition, I'd take about 3000mg of Omega-3 fish oils per day. It's a powerful anti-inflammatory. Eating anti-inflammatory foods was the bit that helped me get rid of pain - forever.

    Please consider that it may be stress-related, in which case you want to do something about that - maybe meditate, take a vacation, etc. Stopping exercising altogether is not a great idea in my opinion.

    Already supplementing with 3 grams for fish oil each day, the orthopaedic here is ****ing retarded, I'm living in a small city and the injury just doesn't seem big enough to bother my parents to go with me to another city. So the internet is currently my only option. I have yet to find a place to buy a foam roller since those aren't really popular here(Not American/Canadian/Australian).

    Thanks for all the help and advice guys, repped everyone ITT, and bumping this thread.

    I had the exact same thing...in the same place.

    The doctor said it was from walking my dogs...

    He gave me a prescription strength Sodium Naproxin (same active ingredient as Aleve) and a topical Ibuprofen...and I was as good as new in about a week (after putting up with it for about a month)

    This^ got the SAME EXACT PAIN when switched from cross grip to oly grip on front squats and took me a month to figure out what it was. Pay attention what movements you do and see what aggravates it. Myo release, working on flexability, and massages eventually made it go away.

    I have found that cutting one of the foam water noodles into a managable section work great as a foam roller...and its cheaper.

    I've had pain in the same area which turned out to be tense, knotted-up muscle. I'll third the suggestion of foam rolling, and also suggest a proper deep tissue sports massage.

    I would get pains in a similar spot if I slept longer than normal or after I woke up I laid in bed for awhile.

    Does the pain have any correlation with your breathing?
