    I don't know how to breakdance, I was just being retarded. Anyway, I guess I was arching my back too much because now, about 6 hours I have pain in my lower thoracic spine. The pain isn't affect by moving around at all, it's just a constant, uncomfortable feeling. Does anyone know what kind of injuries I might be looking at here? I hope it goes away soon and doesn't cause any chronic problems. :hs: I'll go to a doctor if it lasts a couple days.

    I'm sure you are fine, most likely you just strained a back muscle you don't often use

    the pain will most likely go away within a couple days

    Give it a day. If the pain is worse tomorrow or even by this afternoon you may need to see someone about it.

    You can't tell much the first day.
