Hey all, I've been meditating for about a week now, daily, and have been able to do about 20-30 minutes a night. For the past two days in a row though, I was out late with friends and I don't have time in the morning, so I was unable to continue. Today i was once again able to sit down to it, but within about 5 minutes I started to feel terrible back pain. Its in the middle of my back, to high to be lower back pain, but low enough that it is not near my neck. It's just below my shoulder blades, worst of it is in the middle area. I've never had anything like this before, and I cannot think of anything I did differently when meditating this time.
It was pretty bad, though it's mostly subsided now (about 20 minutes after i decided to stop) Any ideas of what I may have done? :/
If its any help, i sat on a cushion in a half lotus, same as always.
