Tweated my back on deadlifts, now I'm scared. Plus Testosterone Issues

So, last week I tried to beat my pathetic little deadlift PR (2@235lbs) which I did (3@235lbs). After the last rep, my lower back started hurting, and is still hurting a week later. Not bad, but...

Squat

When I have used an alternate grip, I was locking my arm, but it still hurt. I even tried switching each arm per set. I need to find my old straps. They're around here somewhere.
