Excruciating pain when standing up

Ok first of all let me tell you the list of thing that I have been diagnosed with: fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease, bulging discs, chronic pain (of course, and spondylisis all of this in my neck and lower back. Yesterday when I went to stand up from the toilet, yes very embarrassing, I had the most excruciating pain in my low back that I have ever felt. It can't even think of how to describe how it felt. I went to my pain doctor, because thank god I had an appointment and forget to tell him. I was however telling him that the last three mornings I have been waking up very stiff so he is giving me facet injections in three weeks. Should I go to the er and tell them this just happened so I can find out if it's something way more serious, like I blew a disc or something, because I still cannot hardly get around my husband or son have to help me get up and I get a tiny relief when walking to walk hunched over. Does anyone have advice on this hopefully quickly?

  • I am so sorry that you are going through this! Is there any way that you could get the injection moved up? If not I might get another MRI. I had the same thing that you are experiencing before my Fusion. I am 4 weeks and 4 days post op. Ice helps me a lot I would hold it on my back or someone else would when I would get up!! I Truly pray that you get better soon!!

    Thank you so much for your prayers I really appreciate them. Unfortunately I cannot get the injection moved up but I will tell my pain doctor what happened. I ended up in the er last night because I couldn't handle the pain anymore and they did an xray which of course showed nothing new. They put me on bed rest for 3-4 days. Should I wait until my injections to tell pain doctor or call him first thing in the morning?

    When I have gone to ER for pain control, the ER would give me written instructions to follow up with my doctor within two days.

    So, my habit, is to always update doctor with phone call, then let him decide if he wants to see me to assess, or otherwise guide me or he just says thanks for the information.

    I'm glad ER able to calm your pain.
