I hurt my lower back maybe a year or two ago, and I was in a lot of pain. I am a dancer and was lifting my dance partner into the air without stretching and hurt my lower back severely. I could not even walk at that time. I was in agony. I never saw a doctor for this pain as I was scared to be stopped from dancing although I had to stop due to the pain. I could not even bend as my back would not let me as well as the pain. After about two weeks, I could walk and slowly bend even though it hurt a lot. It took many months for the pain to go away although often when it is cold outside or if I do any activity the pain comes back, but it is not as severe. I am just wondering about the injury. Could that be a muscle pull or something more serious?
