    No problem. It might also be all my playing too. I am religious about playing 30-45 minutes a day.

    I'm off to the docs right now.

    Oh ok...I was thinking that you might be new to playing. Sometimes new drummers go through weird little things like that.


    Missed with that one lol

    Btw, how long have you been playing?
    I think it may be the way I am sitting (my posture)

    I've been play ever since I was a little rug rat - 15-16 years now.

    I guess I am hunched over a bit, and I kind of sit high and far back. The pain started when I was a fill.

    I dont do any jumping or anything, no.

    Phil Collins.


    So, is it still giving you problems, and have you gotten it checked out by someone with M.D. or D.O. or other such initials after their name?
    No, I am going to the docs today.

    If you had a pain in the spin and your arm twitched, it sounds like you might have pinched the motor nerves traveling to your arms. I'm no MD, so I don't know how that might happen, but I am taking a detailed Brain and Nervous system anatomy class, so that popped to mind. Could also be due to a compressed disk. Do you do a lot of jumping, hard landing, ect?

    I'd get it checked out. Go to a chiropractor. You don't want to screw with the spine.
    Thank you, Chevey.

    How in the #@*% are we supposed to know? Yes you should go to the doctor as he/she has gone to school for a godzillion years only to practice medicine. It only takes a high school diploma and perhaps some college to do what we do.

    If your pee pee was going numb but it only happened once WOULD you go check it out ....just to be on the safe side???

    OMG where do these people come from???

    Dr. M-11 has it right. "Back stuff" can be muscular in origin, or something to do with a vertebral disc, etc., etc. If the pain is right square up the center, it kinda rules out a kidney problem, but not 100%. ("Referred pain," ya know.)

    So take two of your NSAID of choice, and call us in the morning. And maybe lay off the drums for awhile. (Don't take up guitar, either, or at least don't start with a Les Paul-style. Those are heavy.)

    You are describing a early symptom of at least 400 things.

    Try a medical board.
