    i did something to my back, and I'm basically bed ridden. It's between my shoulder blades, and shoots up my neck, and down my arms. Can't move....like, at all.

    I've narrowed it down to a herniated disc,
    Leprosy, or AIDS. Not sure which, though

    It's a Leprosy/AIDs cross mix.

    I just checked WebMD. I think it's actually Hep A, B, and C together. Some kind of strange reaction when they all get up in there. Crazy, right?

    Did you feel/hear anything snap?

    I have tweaked my neck before that was intense pain, and prevented me from moving for a couple days.

    Back muscles suck, and when they spasm it hurts.

    Oh yes. As far as over the counter stuff goes, Aleve is the best.

    If you take 2 you'll be able to tie your shoes without help again.

    Get one of those solid foam tubes or roll a bunch of towels up into a hard tube
    Lie with them starting at the base of your head done your spine. Do about 30-40 snow angle movements with your arms 2-3 times a day. It will help a lot
    You have something most likely going on with your deltoid and it is a big triangle of pain. Go buy one of those foam yoga tubes and do this exercise it will help a lot. Again if you can't just roll some towels up really tight. It helps
    This happens to me, mostly as a result of weight lifting or driving a car or computer work the day before.
    Also take 2-3 hot showers and try some Ben gay type runs there are good ones now

    "It's all in your head. Listen, read this book by Dr. Sarno. I'm telling you it'll cure you. Just like it cured me of may gay feelings. Oh, is this mike on?"

    Ben gay is offensive. It should really be, Ben who is attracted to the same sex.

    That's a terrible plan if he actually has a herniated disc. I did that very thing thinking it jest needed popped back into place, but it made it much worse.
