On December 30th I moved house and helped carry a few of the lighter handheld items knowing that I have had lower back pain 3 months ago, which was diagnosed as muscular in nature I tried to limit my lifting to items that I felt comfortable in carrying in two hands such as small boxes and the like. On retiring to bed that night my back was a little sore but nothing out of what normally would happen to anyone. On waking the following morning I couldn't get out of bed at all, due to severe pain and extremely painful muscular spasms in my lower back ( approx in the right lower quadrant region but also near my coccyx ) , thankfully I was staying at family for new year and they had some diclofenac tablets and paracetamol to give me to help. I couldn't get out of bed for nearly two hours and was taken immediately to the local casualty dept.
an X ray was performed but the consultant radiologist was thankfully was reporting on all x rays that morning, told me an X ray was useless for this type of injury and an MR I was the only way to diagnose what was going on.
I was sent home with a short cause of Diazapam 5mg x 3 daily and Codeine phosphate 30th, to be honest neither of these have helped at all, I'm still in terrible pain and can hardly walk or get out of bed in the morning without the spasm knocking me back to a supine position immediately.
I am very worried , as I live alone in a house were all my furniture and bed etc is still in pieces as the removal firm left it, I can't put these together at the moment as my pain is excruciating.
I have had lower back pain in the past but this is on a Completely different level and shows no signs of improving even 4 days in. Please help, any advice as to how to control this pain as it isn't even been touched by my current regime.
I live in the UK
