I injured the lower left side of my back something awful, and I could use some tips if anybody's got'em. Its a really horrible stabbing pain, it hurts if I even twitch the wrong way.
I went to a yoga instructor I know, and she showed me a few back strengthening excercises, but all I can really do without feeling pain is the cobra, leg raises while laying on my stomach, and mild toe touches on a semi-propped leg. I tried the plank, but that sucked something awful.

It sounds as though you're having some rather horrid spasms & it probably would be a good idea to just let your back have a rest without any exercises right now.
If it doesn't start to feel better soon, see your physician.

Work your abs, too. A lot of back problems are caused by weak abs and a weak back.

Feel your pain Shug! I just recovered from lower back pain. Let it heal and don't stress it anymore! Otherwise you'll be singing the blues until you give your back a break.
Ditto on the abs, but the back is first place to go with just about any strength problem... I've been working on the splits and stretches, and the knees and lower backs are stressed the most...

Quit being a bitch.
If it keeps hurting see a doctor not a yoga instructor who thinks henna improves flow through your chakras.
Sounds more like muscle injury than an actual back injury, work your lower back in proportion to your abs, injuries like that aren't caused by weak abs but rather a disparity in strength between your abs and lower back.

rest your back until it feels better then work on the lower back exercises.
Hmmm. I'll kill him. I'll kill him dead. Like with, with a, rock or something. Like a, like a stone.

go to the doctor, you might have fractured a transverse process, a small and otherwise usless piece of bone on your lower vertebrae...once dislodged...excrutiatingly painfull...cure...rest. Even if you just pulled a muscle or pinched a nerve you should get a specialist to look at it...his opinion is lightyears more informed than our own.
