Hi Sparks

It sounds as though you have done less damage than originally thought and you body is trying to wake up, the pain may be similar to sleeping on your arm and when you re-position things start to wake up and it hurts like hell. If you go to a physio only start gently as it sounds as though your body has its own healing plans.
Good Luck
