Help! I somehow hurt my back badly. I've been dealing with herniated discs at L4/L5 & L5/S1 for a year now and just finished my 2nd round of RF (have also had 2 epidural injections and 4 FJIs, 2 on each side) and the pain was about 80% better for 2 days following the recent RF and pain has been gradually worsening back to what it previously was over the last week. Earlier this afternoon I was doing laundry and finished what I was doing, walked towards the couch to sit down, and wham! was suddenly hit with excruciating pain in my lower right side! I have no idea what I did to cause this much pain, I have been laying down on my heating pad for the last 3 1/2 hours trying to make the pain go away, I've already taken the max amount of Vicodin and Skelalxin prescribed for me for the day just over the last few hours. My PM is out of town and the office advised me to go to the ER if the pain is that bad. I am unable to bend over to touch my knees! Any idea what I did?? Does this warrant an ER visit? Or is there something I can do here at home to minimize my pain? Due to other medications that I'm on I am unable to take any NSAIDs. All recommendations appreciated!! Thanks!
