We hope you are still checking this site because our husky today had the exact same symptoms and crying that you wrote about years ago. Did you ever find out anything more?
Our husky dug out one night ago under the fence and seemed fine yesterday, but today he cried out and didn't want to get up. The vet found the sensitive place in the lumbar region and so far has just suggested painkillers and anti-inflammatory medicine for a few days.
We wonder if your dog got over the condition or if it developed into something else?
Here's hoping for insight . .

Over this holiday season, her dog started "crying" and would not or had great trouble moving around. This happened very suddenly,
the dog was fine in the morning when she went to work and seemed normal when she returned, walking and playing as usual. After about 2 hours the crying started she took her to the vet. They did x-rays and everything looks normal but when the vet put pressure on the lumbar region, the dog was very vocal! The vet told her to get a crate and keep the dog quiet for 10 days and that she suspects Intravertabre disc disorder. This is a youg dog (3 years) with no obvious symptoms except the sudden onset of pain (the husky was playing vigoriously with my dog only 3 days before!) I told her to get a second opinion and suspect maybe a pinched nerve or slipped disc which wouldn't show on an x-ray. She decided to bring the dog home and crate it things improve with rest. I'm hoping one of you have come across somthing like this before.
