Hoping someone can give me any info that may help lead me in right direction…
Was squatting yesterday and it was going great, on my fourth set as soon as I unracked the bar and stood up I immediately had to re rack it. A sudden sharp pain in my mid / upper back . By looking at anatomy pics it looks like c7 or t1 area maybe? Pain was so severe I could not move neck, 24 hours later it’s still the same. Can barely move neck and extreme pain in upper spine between shoulder blades. If I lay down on my back it’s impossible to lift my head, only way I can get up is to roll over on my stomach and lift myself up.
Went to the doctor he said I herniated a disc and gave me muscle relaxers…no x-ray done. He said it will take a couple weeks to get better but I feel like I should go back again or may risk permanent damage??
Anyone have any similar stories or advice??
