HI Iggy, sorry about the crap I generated - the general consensus is, go see a chiropractor (or similar) You got a real good chance of NOT having a stuffed back, you need to learn how to lift, be aware of bad lifts, and try and build up your back muscles that support your spine. Do this, you will be OK.
Just wish I had known this when my back starting going, too many years ago now.
Doctors will give you things to mask the pain/discomfort - pills wont fix it. You need a chiropractor.
Good luck, I honestly wish you well.
