I had a seizure 3 weeks ago and my back still hurts from my body tensing up. It's must above my mid back. And I can't turn my body fully to the left or arch it inward. It feels tight followed by great pain like its about to pop but doesn't. What's wrong and what can I do?

Hey Josh B.

Welcome to the forum! :)

Sorry to hear about that seizure attack. Are you certain that you got that back pain from the seizure? Well it's actually quite common for people suffering from epilepsy to experience body pain once the seizure acts up and tenses the body.

The best thing you can do is have it checked to get a sense of certainty. Then second is have it treated. Don't solely rely on meds so consider physiotherapy, chiropractic massages, relaxation methods, aromatherapy, and yoga.

You should also treat those seizure attacks, if it is the cause of the body pain then it is essential that you treat it as well.

Indeed, it sounds like you basically pulled a muscle in your back when your body flexed so hard during the seizure.

Drink a lot of water, eat anti-inflammatory food (such as fish), and try to get some bloodflow to the area through exercise. There's some great lower back exercises for back pain relief here:

I hope that helps and good luck to you!

I pulled my back muscles in a car accident and it was terrible. It sounds like you may have done something similar. The obvious things like drinking water are great. Eating anti-inflammatory foods, gentle stretching, a good anti-inflammatory/muscle relaxer may help. The best thing for me afterwards was getting a massage 1x per week for 3 weeks. It helped work all the junk and unhappy muscles back to normal.

Best of luck!
