Bent down and felt a tearing sensation - back now in agony!

Bent down to get something off the floor in work and felt a sharp tearing / pulling sensation and the most hideous pain across my lower back and into my hips. I was able to stand but started sweating and felt awful.

Its settled a bit now and i can move around but theres a low level pain accompanied by a sharp pain that takes my breath away if I move too quickly.

I'm in work sat at my desk - taken paracetamol - anything else I can do to help it apart from keep walking around often?

I had spinal surgery for a burst disc in 2010 and Ive been great up until today. Typical sad

I'd get that checked out. Poor thing sounds awful.

Sounds like you may have slipped one of your discs from the description, sorry
