Just put my back out!

Well this is a first, I was just starting my back workout 30 mins ago, deadlifts first, so going through my warm up sets and have seriously fcuked my back, was still warming up on 140kg, half way up felt a sharp twinge in the lower left part.  Right now I can barely walk and bending down unassisted is a no go.  It's even painful sitting on my chair typing this out.
 
Any advice?

    Depending on how bad it is then mabey Doc / Hospital, find out exactly what damage you have done.
    Ive had similar happen a few times in the past and ignored it and just took painkillers for a few weeks till the pain was bareable.. Last time it happened, I though fukit, went to the hospital to find out Ive had a herniated disk.

    I did the exact same thing about 2 years ago, warming up for deads as well but with only 80 kg lol! I remember I could barely drive home it was so sore. I just took asprin and sprayed on deepheat. It healed up pretty quick, after the 1st day it felt a lot better and after a week it was fine.

    Get some deep heat and rest it. You use your back for a lot more than you think (it will affect a lot more than just back exercises) so take week off completely and assess from there. Deep heat does work wonders though.

    Deep heat in the acute inflammatory stage will just make it worse.
     
    Herniated discs are relatively rare in the grand scheme of things, a muscle spasm/strain is the more probably cause, but shouldn't be tighten lightly obviously!

    Hopefully it will heal up quick, it does feel pretty bad though, very sharp pain and I haven't felt something like this before.
     
    I've already taken some painkillers, will get some deep heat tomorrow.
     
    Cheers guys

    The most annoying thing is, I had finally worked my way back up to my best deadlift weight again only last week! Grrr
     
    So deep heat or no deep heat?

    No heat for at least the first 72 hours IMO.

    Could be right. I healed up quickest when waiting a week before applying deep heat. Didn't really think the waiting had anything to do with it so good point.

    my back randomly went two weeks ago while i was making coffee...couldnt move or walk without agony.
     
    For me a sauna helped if you have acces to one, getting really hot then light strething seemed to make a big improvement!

    Did mine on leg press a month ago, let it rest for 2 weeks then it went again doin deads. Lesson learned, dont rush back into things.

    To be honest, I don't think I warmed up enough, both in terms of litterally 'warming' up, as I had been sitting down all day and in terms of warmup sets.  I won't be making that mistake again thats for sure.
     
    On the plus side, the Panadol has kicked in and I can walk again!

    Poor form, or inadequate rest time between sets will probably be the case.
     
    I did mine last month, as a result or sh1t form on a 90% rep. It was very uncomfortable at the time, but cleared up after about 4-5 days.

    Ice it heavily today - you will be as stiff as a board for next few days. Do some gentle stretches, take anti inflams and within 7 days you will be much much better and 100% in about 10 days.
     
    From what you described its a pulled/strained muscle - I have done this loads of times - if you get someone to feel on your back where pain is I bet they find its all tight and tense in that area.
