    Whilst warming up for a session of basketball, I was doing the cobra stretch. http://img4.cookinglight.com/i/2008/...0803p68d-s.jpg

    After a couple of seconds my back really ached in the middle area. I slowly tried to find a stance which wouldn't cause aching, which was crouching. However, it still hurt a bit & occasionaly I felt like I couldn't even breathe as my lungs felt like crushed from the ribs.

    Its been 9 hours and still hurts like hell unless I sit with my back straight against a chair.

    How the **** do I get rid of this. Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhh help!!! Pretty please!!!

    Have you taken pain killers?

    I think pain killers and an attempt at sleep is the best plan for now, it sounds like you may have pulled a muscle and we all know that there is no miricle cure for that.

    u might have pulled your muscle. Try 'Deep Heat'. Or Ibuprofel gel on the sore bit. If pain still presist after 4 or 5 days, go and see your doctor.

    Consult the pharmacist before trying ibuprofen or Aspirin if you're asthmatic or had stomach uncer before.

    You should be fine with some pain killers, i cant see why it would make any difference.

    You can use either a heat or a cold pack if you want to try one. I used a heat pack last time i did in my back.

    A heat pack as it helps to relax the muscles. A cold pack is usually to stop swelling.

    I think heat pack is better. It soothes the pain. It also dilates the blood vessels therefore more supply of O2 and nutrients to damaged area.

    An anti inflammatory? Ibuprofen will do the trick!
