crooked back and muscle spasms...need help quickly please!
I have 3 herniated discs at L3-L4, L4-L5, and L5-S1. From time to time my lower back locks up and goes into spasms so that I'm all crooked and in pain. Of course it happened again this morning and I'm trying to do everything I can to stop the pain and spasms so that I can take my mother out to dinner for Mother's Day. I've been icing my back every hour or so for 20 minutes and I took an Aleve but it's not really helping much. Is there any exercise or stretch that I can do that will "unlock" my back so that I can stand up straight and take my mother out to dinner? I can deal with the pain but being hunched over like Quasimodo is killing me and I'm desperate at this point. In the past I've always just waiting it out until the spasms stopped but today is a special day. Please help!!!
