Severe back pain :(

I got up this morning and was absolutely fine but walking down the hallway I had really sudden back pain and felt like my legs were going to collapse under me. Since then I've been in bed and the pain subsides when lying down, but I just tried to walk again, it's agony and I could barely lift my right leg off the floor. It feels better if I lean over and support my weight on my arms, i.e. on the banister or a piece of furniture. I can also crawl ok. I've got a 14 week old ebf baby and a 2.5yr old, so it's a bit of a disaster. Should I go to A&E / urgent care if I'm struggling to walk? Won't be able to get a gp appointment until tomorrow now. Thanks.

It could be a bulging/slipped disk. I would go to urgent care because you need specialist advice on what you can take while bf and you don't want to damage nerves. Can you wee ok?

Toilet functions are fine so far!

How are you getting on?

Sooo much better thank you! Ended up with a diclofenac sodium suppository shock from urgent care and it really helped. Must have just pulled a muscle, still a bit twingey but can move nearly normally. Thanks!
