Lower back and hip pain, muscle spasms
I was diagnosed with a back strain almost 4 weeks ago. I didn't trip, fall, or anything I was just walking and suddenly I heard a pop in my ears and I had to crawl to a phone and barely made it. The pain as far as not being able to move has eased but now I am having severe left hip and left lower back pain and severe constant muscle spasms across my entire back and can barely move my left hip after working a 4 hours. the dr said i have signs degenerative damage but gave no further detail. The muscle spasms feel like a Charlie horse that never ends..

The symptoms which you have described point to a degenerative slip disc and the slipped disc may be causing pinching on your nerve root that is the reason for your hip pain and continuous spasms However to fully confirm the diagnosis you need to undergo a test called Mri I would suggest to take care of your back and maintain straight posture do not lift heavy weights and do not Bend forwards Consult a local orthopaedic or spine specialist and then he may advise Mri and physio and some medicines to relieve you of your pain Don't waste time doing self medication or home remedies I will suggest you to consult a doctor as soon as possible
