So last night I was doing my back workout when I felt a slight “pop” and then had an instant tightening of my left lat. The pain and stiffness is at the very bottom of my lat, in towards the spine.
Right after this happened I could hardly bend over from the waist, but was able to stretch the muscle and had full range of movement. Every time I would bend over though I would have the wind knocked out of me from the pain and my back would tighten up.
I took some Tylenol and used heat and a massage chair on it last night. It felt pretty good before going to bed but about an hour after I went to bed it started hurting worse than anything I felt before. I still have my range of movement but it’s very painful to lie down.
Anyway any advice on how to heal up from this? It hurts like a b@itch so I’ll try anything lol. I figure if it doesn’t get better in a few days I’ll go to the doctor to see if I tore the muscle.
Thanks for your help!
