I'm just looking for a little advice here. Years ago I walked Red Rocks (in Denver) in those awful Skechers Shape-ups and the next next my lower back hurt so bad it was next to impossible to get out of bed the next couple of days. I didn't equate the Skechers to the pain so I wore them again another day and the same thing (not as bad) happened again. Now every 6-8 months I'll have these recurring flare-ups and the one I'm in now is worse than ever. (I haven't worn those Skechers in a long time now). This time I didn't really know why it started to hurt and then I picked up a baby in a car seat and just fell to my knees. I crawled to the couch and couldn't get up for a little over an hour. My cousin took me to urgent care, they injected something in my buttock, and told me to wait 10 mins. After 10 mins I got up, walked 2 steps, and my whole lower back spasmed like crazy! So I screamed for someone to help me and they called an ambulance. At the ER they did an x-Ray and prescribed some pain meds, Advil, and muscle relaxers. That was 4 days ago and I just don't feel like I'm getting better or possibly just a little better. My pain is mostly on my left, lower back, and it definitely radiates into my left hip, buttock, thigh, groin, etc. Every once in a while I will get a tingling sensation (like right before you shiver) in my left leg. Do I go back in to the ER? What do I do? It's Memorial Day weekend.
