A few times in my life I experienced back pain. Scenario would be me bent over getting something from a box or picking something up. Back would seize and I'd crumple to the ground in excruciating pain. After a few minutes I could work my way to my feet and I'd hurt like he'll for a day or so.
Well this past Wednesday the exact scenario happened. By Thursday I was feeling pretty good. Then Friday morning in my office I got up to get out of my chair and the pain hit. I crumpled right to the floor where I layed for 2 hours. I couldn't get up. I had to crawl across the floor and get my phone from a jacked that I could pull to the floor.
My brother came by and after a bunch of tries I was finally able to get into a chair. Doctor prescribed muscle relaxant and percoset. Once up both my legs hurt, the left more than the right. I took the meeds and got into bed. Sometimes eviler lying down I'd try to reposition myself my back would lock up for a few seconds in horrendous pain and then setlle down.
Today my leg hurts bad, buttock to foot sciatica type pain.
Needless to say I was scared to death lying helpless on the floor and the fact that this happened not lifting or bending but standing up from a chair has me worried.
Any thoughts on what this could be?
Needless to say this has scared the crap out if me. I was helpless lying on the floor and that's scary not to mention the most intense pain I've ever felt.
