Kara - Chutzie and PaLady are right... moving is SOOO bad for us! I'm not even supposed to lift a gallon of milk... moving, even if you didn't pick anything up can be very hard on your body. All the packing, moving, pushing, pulling and everything can give muscles in your body more of a workout than ever. You could try heat or ice to calm down the muscles. Or try ice to numb the pain and heat to relax it away. A good hot bath or massage might help to. If you can take NSAID's they might help (aleeve, motrin...) you've got your back probably pretty pissed off and it's going to take playing nice with it for awhile to get it calmed down.
As they said if it doesn't feel better soon talk to your doc about
it, just to make sure you've haven't ticked it off too bad.
