Vlad, I'm willing to bet that yer pain is due to muscles spasms in yer lower back. It has nothing to do with yer spinal cord. Many will tell you otherwise.
I get a tweek in my lower every couple years or so. The last time, it came when I pulled up my chair to the desk. Little things can set it off if yer inclined to it.
Ice! And lots of it. I have a pretty high pain tolerance, so I toss the meds. Muscle relaxants may be of help, but I toss them as well.
Stay off yer feet, and ICE!
Quacks can make up all kinda crap that sounds good at the time. In my case, I was getting 3 hrs sleep, and hadn't had a decent crap in a week.
I don't have a high end bed, but I do suppliment it with the memory foam. Yes, it's a heat maker, but we don't have much hot days around here.
Keep us in the loop.
