Intense and prolonged tennis or boxing result in incapacitating lower back pain with inflammation. Have to stay in bed 2 or 3 days. Why? Treatment?

In brief: Concerning

It is not recommended to stay in bed for longer than 2 days for back pain.
That being said, an intense activity resulting in severe pain is of concern. Tennis and boxing (high impact with a lot of twisting) can aggravate an underlying problem in the back. You may have an underlying disc injury. See you doctor for an exam and work up.

In brief: See doctor

Could be just muscle spasms, or could be a disc herniation or something more serious.
Go get checked out by your doctor.
