The circumstances surrounding this experience is important. Were you physically active immediately before the event - or shortly before? Were you involved in excessive strain on your back or subjected to an extended period of irregular posture? The occurrence may indicate an underlying problem in your musculo-skeletal system and as such I would recommend a visit to a Chiropractic doctor.
