Hate that happened. That makes me mad just hearing about it. Don't worry, karma will come back to him, trust me.

Thanks, bud. Yesterday my roomate/lady friend rubbed some back ointment on me and gave me a bit of a massage. Then she went and bought me some Icy Hot back patches. Last night and this morning nothing changed, I still hurt bad, but now, after a nice long aspirin induced deep sleep this morning I hardly even remember the pain. I slept like a baby just now, no grunting and groaning in agony or anything and I know I was switching up positions like I always do. Plus I immediately got up and out of bed (which required me sitting up) and walked around with only a few sore leg muscles, not like the bone crunching, jarring, paralyzing pain I previously was experiencing up until this morning in my lower back and mid-riff.

Looks like I'm going to make it after all. I was worried I'd have to cancel that interview and new job altogether but now this is a pleasant surprise!

Thanks all, I'll let you all know how the new job goes Monday.

Doc I'm guessing that you have a tight muscle in your back. I've had chronic back pain for 20 years - I think it all started with Scoliosis. Sometimes what will happen is a group of muscles will all pull on each other and one gets wore out while the others stay tight. The end result is that the tightness of the other muscles keeps the strain on the wore out muscle. If you have a sturdy cylinder around 2"-4" in diameter, you can try putting it on the floor and rolling yourself back and forth on it (the roller perpendicular to your spine). Move slowly and when you reach a tender spot, pause there for 20-30 seconds. The pain should subside in the 20-30 second period and then move on to the next spot. Do this 4-5 times a day until the problem goes away, which could be 1 or 2 weeks. You can also have your girlfriend massage out any knots. The most effective way is for her to use her elbow on the knot. It'll feel like there's a cheese grater in the middle of your muscle, but try to bear it - it'll feel better afterward. I'll also found that a heating pad works much better than ice. One of the theories about the roller and the massage is that it forces fresh blood in and out of the locked muscles, and that tends to clean them out. A heating pad will also lead to increased blood flow.

I'm not an expert in this area, but it is what I have been able to gather over the years talking to physical therapists over the years. If you try the roller, you might need to wrap a towel around it and hold it in place with a rubber band because if it's too hard, it'll pinch on your vertebrae.
