Omg The pain is so bad

I just spent 10 minutes crawling inch by inch from my fridge to the damn bed crying. The pain level in my back from a 1 to 10 is a 20. I rarely ever get this pain, maybe only once every 6 months, and this is the worse its been ever! I feel like i cant breath or even think. I want to go to the hospital but i literally cant even stand. My legs feel paralyzed and the pain is so bad i feel like my eyes are going to explode. Not to mention the major sweating from the amount of effort trying to get back in bed. I thought i was fine and i just wanted to get up and wash my hands and get water. As soon as i got to the fridge i collapsed on the ground.

  • If that bad, surely you should call an ambulance?

    I agree with koolpc, with a pain level that high don't think I'd even be able to post on this site.

    Hope you were able to seek help.

    Welcome to Spine-health

    Your comment about thinking you were fine to get up and wanted to just wash your hand and drink water, is indicating that you are confined to bed at the moment.

    Please share your full condition, so other members can understand what exactly it is you are dealing with.

    I hope your pain has reduced.

    If you have not been to see your doctor already about this, you should call them and explain your pain levels for advice on how to get help.  There are no medical professional on this site to give you advice.

    Take care and keep us updated
