Last night my back grew increasingly uncomfortable 3-4 on a scale to 10. I went to bed in a moderate amount of pain about a 6. I took some pain medicine and went to bed. This morning the pain shot up to an 8.5. I feel just awful. I know I need to do something and do it soon, but I'm not sure where I should start.
First thing to consider, I am one week into wearing a snug compression garment for some upper body lipo. A heavy elastic band sits at the low back area. I thought to call my plastic surgeon when the office opens to ask if there could be any correlation between the elastic and the recurrance of pain. Perhaps that could prompt a garment switch and help solve the problem.
I've also considered calling my orthopedist for an appointment. I don't want to seem premature, but at the same time, I really hurt.
Again, I know I need to act, but am unsure of how to proceed. Any thoughts?
