Did Mystic Falls' resident witch Bonnie cast a painful spell on Nina Dobrev?

A couple weeks ago, we noticed some tweets from Nina that seemed to imply she was seriously injured on the set of The Vampire Diaries.

"Intense day," she tweeted on September 14. "Wakeup. To Set. Immense Pain. Chiropractor to set. "Pinched Nerve". *Crack. Relief. Temporary. Then Ouchy. Masseuse to set. Mmm..:)"

A chiropractor and a masseuse sent to set in the same day? Sounds kinda serious.

That night, Nina tweeted again, "Reiki. Better. Home. Bedrest. Smile. Now- Ouchy again. Back is on fire. Can't seem to sleep, every which way I lay hurts..restless in bed."

Defined in the dictionary, Reiki is 'a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.'

A good idea, but it didn't get any better...

"Searing Pain," Nina tweeted the next day, her pinched nerve obviously not healed. "Can't move.," Nina sent to her followers.

We're not sure how she hurt her back -- intense makeout scene with Stefan or Katherine kicking serious booty on set are both possibilities. The good news is that her cat and the pain reliever Biofreeze are helping Nina feel better, and she returned back to work on Monday to film more episodes of TVD.

"First day back on set - taking it easy but still doing great work," the 21-year-old tweeted. Feel better soon, Nina!
