I have an appointment to the Naval Academy and I just recently hurt my lower back in weightlifting class. I'm almost certain its the muscles not the bones because I can do a hamstring stretch and it will feel almost back to normal. But when I wake up in the mornings and sometimes during the day it will hurt again. Another thing, I can PT and everything, its only when I bend my back FAR is when it hurts, I can still bend over and pick things up fine. Its been hurting like this for about 1.5 weeks now, and I'm scarred to go to a doctor about it because I don't want anything to medically DQ me. So what should I do?
