At work today I was lifting a few boxes, and upon lifting, I had a jolt of pain shot from my lower right back to my right buttocks. I blew it off as usual, just getting the occasional low/medium pains. After about an hour, I could feel not pain, but pressure, on my right hip. I looked at my waistline, and it was cocked on the right,leaning my body left. I left work immediately to go lay in bed at home, and on the way it got worse, to where I couldn't stand straight.( leaning forward and to the left )This has happened before, about 3-4 times since last year,and I just relaxed until it got better (24-36 hrs) but this time it is bad.Right now it is killing me to even sit here and type at my desk, but mostly it is not a nerve pain, but pressure? on my right side, from the muscles being pushed away from the spine. I can lay in bed for as little as 10-15 mins, get up and walk straight w/o much hurt at all, but then it gradually starts to pull me to the left again, as the pressure feeling grows with it. I just wanted to if anyone has ever experienced this. I told my boss it was a 50/50 chance I would be in tomorrow. I can wake up fine (as I've done in the past) or it may still exist. Is it a slipped disc? I don't believe it is a hernia, but I found something that sounds feasible. That it may be inflammation (on the right side) and the muscles are pulling the spine away from the inflammation, sort of like a natural reaction, or defense.Any advice, suggestion, or exercises?
BTW...was gonna wait a day at least before seeing a doc.
