Pinching and stabbing pains in lower back

Hi all,
I was not.able to go to my appt in April so now I must wait til May 3. I have recently started having pinching stabbing pain in my lower back that comes and goes. Also, when I lay down I can't get back up cause of extreme pain. I still have the low back lain of feeking like I have weights pulling my back down. I have no idea wbat in the world is going on with me. Is this normal and part of my healing process?

    Hi Ladylance

    You had surgery in Feb, probably 8 weeks ago. You need to discuss this with your doctor just to make sure what it is. It could be nerves, sometimes they take a while to wake up. But don't assume anything, get his opinion.

  • Thank you for your advice. Today has been a really bad pain day. I had to go get lab work done and I couldnt get out of my car because the pain is so bad. I called and left a message with my surgeon's nurse letting her know what was going on and I asked her to see if my surgeon would order a mri so he would have it for my May appointment to see what was going on. But right now I am thinking about going to the er.
