I trapped a nerve in my back on Saturday morning, and it really hurts. Been to gp today who told me my back has gone into spasm, and has given me valium to try and relax the muscles . She said if i am not better by weds then she is getting me some home physio sessions sorted. I can't stand up straight without lots of wailing.

ouch Lou! I've suffered from this on and off since been pregnant with my ds - 4.5 yrs ago I can sympathise

Thanks. I'd gone away for the weekend with dh and the kids as well, so it certainly took the fun out of it.

Well, you should be lovely and calm Lou, Isn't that what they used to call "mother's little helpers"!

Whimper...... at least it is a good excuse for sitting about on here.

She only gave me 2mg ones, but I can take more than one, so hopefully I will love everyone in about 20 mins

Valium made me feel all cosy , but didn't take pain away, and didn't last long enough, nor did it stop me caring about what the kids were destroying.

She said if I was not better by weds to call her and she will try and get emergency physio service to come and visit me. I am supposed to be doing as little as possible, but that's quite hard with 4 kids, although I am doing my best.

Dh is pulling his weight though.
