So this is day three of bed rest for me. Sunday morning I woke up with a lot of back pain... I went upstairs to the kitchen to get some ibuprophen and as I was reaching into the cabinet my entire lower back starts spasming. I would compare it to getting a mild taser hit... I went down to my knees and the spasm kept going so I continued down and next thing I knew was lying on my back trying to find a position my muscles preferred. Once I found it, I stayed there for about five minutes before making my way slowly back to bed.
I don't recall hurting or overextending my back at any point so it is rather a mystery. It has been suggested I may have a virus of some sort and that seems a realistic possibility (though I have no other symptoms). Either way I am starting to feel better. Instead of having periodic spasms of severe pain, now it is more or less constant but moderate to light pain... No doubt soreness from the previous two days' spasms. Tomorrow I expect to be back at work.
**Regarding what I mentioned a few days ago, I haven't heard anything. If I still have no news by this evening I will make an inquiry with the appropriate individual and obviously when I have some news I will post it in a much less ambiguous fashion.
