You've probably heard me talk about me having back problems since 3 weeks to a month ago like not being able to bend over to reach something, but today some kid at school bumped into me and guess what. I FELL. I fell on my side and a Jarred (expression) my spine. so I was lying there. then I was taken to the hospital.

Laugh at me if you want i honestly don't care :p

Any questions?

You just better hope you didn't get a fractured disc.
you don't fracture discs, because they aren't bone, but you can tear an annulus (the material around the disc that holds the fluid in) think of a disc as a liquid gel cap. the annulus would be the outer portion and the disc material would be the liquid inside. tear the outer portion (also called a "ruptured" or "herniated" disc) and the material pours out into the spinal column. often it presses on nerve trunks (causing pain) or causes two vertebrae to rub together (again causing pain). also the disc material is a nerve irritant!!! (poor design there hahaha) when the disc material touches nerves it irritates them and causes inflammation. often a few spine injections (epidural or root blocks) will make the inflammation go down and allow you to recover with LOTS of rest.

take it from me, light. i've been battling a ruptured L5/S1 disc for over a year and half now. it's been a long slow painful process to recovery. if you are having real issues, go see a real spine doc. general practitioners (like your family doc) are NOT equipped to handle spine issues. they will usually take an x-ray (which shows NOTHING because discs do NOT show up on x-ray film) and give you some anti-inflammatories which is another bad decision. you take the anti-inflammatories and it makes you feel better so you move around too much and do more damage in the long run.

my suggestion is to take a long rest from activities. avoid bending over and twisting (especially both at the same time!!!) and if it's not better in a few weeks definitely see a spine doc.
