What am I supposed to do?? :W Go without groceries. I went to the grocery store this evening. It took me over an hour because I had to take my 2 kids with me. Between trying to push the cart with my 6 year old on front and yelling at him to get off and constantly having my daughter run into me or step on me because she's walking behind me while reading, I thought I was going to go nuts. I was getting pretty sore so I told them to stop asking for things and let's get this over so I can get home. I had my daughter help me unload the cart and a friend of mine bagged and carried out my groceries (he works there). No problem, I'll get home and hubby will carry groceries in right? Wrong! My daughter did carry most of them but I twisted as I was carrying one of the bags in and felt a pop. I was already in excruciating pain before this so you can imagine my frustration at this point. I am now laying in bed with heat on my back. Kids are in bed, hubbies sleeping, laundry is done, coffee is sent for morning and I am hurting so bad I want to cry. I took 2 vicoprofen and 1 skelaxin and just took my ambien so I am hoping I will pass out soon. I've got the heat on my back but I am wondering if I should use ice? It feels almost like a pulled a muscle in the l5/s1 area above my right butt cheek.
Does anyone have any suggestions whether I should ice or heat or both? It does feel inflamed.
