The title says it all really. I'd been doing pretty well, on a steady bulk and I decided to go out last night and party. My lower back had been giving me some grief, especially on the left side, but it always does so I've learnt to deal with it. At some poin at the bar, I just remember feeling intense pain throughout my lower back and not being able to bend over at all. So today I'm just lying in bed, icing it, and complaining to everyone I know. Does anyone have any real recommendations for treatment? From what I've found and been told, it's just rest, ice and ibprofen. I was thinking if it's okay by the end of the week I should try swimming, because I don't want to lose all of my recent gains.
