Well I'm assuming it's a trapped nerve. Yesterday I bent down getting dds toys out and felt an awful pain in my right lower back. I ended up on a heap on the floor and couldn't get up for ages as everytime I moved I had a terrible pain. Later the pain moved down the top of my leg for a short while. I now have a very sore area and am afraid to move around too much as it keeps "catching". Have taken Ibuprofen but not sure what else I can do.
DDs have gone back to school/preschool today and I had so much to be getting on with around the house - it's like a bombsite. I am now laying in bed with the laptop - gonna try and get some sleep in a bit.
It's not actually in the middle of my back more to the right towards my hips. Doesn't feel like I have put my back out. Just a very sharp pain like it's linked to a nerve. Am hoping it will just go on it's own with painkillers.
Sparkler1 do you live in Scotland? can reccomend a brill chiropractor who also does alternative medicine(accupuncture) for very reasonable price and before dh found him he was going to someone every two weeks now he sees him once every two or three years!!!!
PMSL - Didn't think about that!! Nah my back went yesterday - the "other" happened a couple of nights ago and it was fine afterwards. <<<here's hoping>>> - imagine going to the docs and explaining that one!!!!
Ouch Sparkler, you poor thing, just seen this. I've just been nursing DH for 2 weeks with a slipped disc and excruciating pain, though he's back at work now but needs to see a chiropractor. Don't want to give conflicting advice, but you could try a hot water bottle on the affected area, that worked really well for DH. Take it easy, hope you feel better soon, hon.
