Any occurrence of sudden back pain, back muscle spasms, and/or sciatica are signs you might be having an emergency back attack. These symptoms should not be left undiagnosed and untreated. Just as you would seek an immediate diagnosis and treatment for chest pain, you should visit a physiatrist or other physician trained in spinal disorders as soon as possible whenever you experience incapacitating back pain. A back attack could indicate an emergency situation that could result in permanent damage if not treated promptly.
