I've got something wrong with every disc in my lower back. I've not had much pain in my middle back, though I do have some scollios, & haven't a work up for mid back.
Today I was doing some housework I know I shouldn't have, but sometimes you just can't stand it anymore, you know? I new I would pay for it with my back, but sometimes you get to a point where you just say to yourself "oh well, it's got to get done, I know I'll be in pain later, but I'll just suck it up, & it will get better in a couple of days". Anybody know what I mean?
Anyway, what I didn't plan for was that when I was sorted of twisted & cleaning the outside of a cabinet, that something would "pop" in my middle back sending shooting pains through my whole lower back!
I took my Norco, flexiril, a hot shower & ice, & it's still killing me! I don't want to go to the ER, because we all know how that will end. I just left a message for my Ortho explaining what happened, & asking if he would prescribe something stronger (I did not suggest any particular drug). I just saw him yesterday, & offered to see him again today if he wants, I just don't want to go to the ER. I really hope I didn't mess something else up!
Thanks for letting me vent!
