Bad back...how long to leave it before going to Drs?
No idea what I've done. Woke up Saturday in pain...when I straighten up, when I lift things and when I lift my arms up above shoulder height. I have 2 herniated discs at L1 and L2 (both conformed by mri) but this is different - it's not back either side of my spine Not really sure what Dr can do I'm trying to keep moving, using heat and paracetamol but it's not easing Ideas? Tips?
