Can’t walk more than 15metres. Really done my back in. I know they say you should move about but I am bed bound.
That’s no good. Sending well wishes your way.
Oh man, that sucks I’m sorry! Hope it passes soon
At the ER they can give you a shot of Tordal. It really relieves the pain and then just rest with ice and ibuprofen. I hope you feel better. I have a really bad back so I can relate.
Try lying on a rolled towel if its a herniated disk, mine does that, it pushed the disk back in.
I’m sorry to hear that @Jimbob. It must be very painful. I hope you’re feeling better soon.
Feeling better now thanks folks. Some paracetamol and ibuprofen helped.
Funny thing: I had a strong coffee and the pain went away for a while. Think the caffeine enhances the painkillers temporarily.
It improves blood flow temporarily. It’s great for headaches, I imagine it would work elsewhere, too. I’m keeping it in mind for next time I want to die after lugging 30 pounds around all day. Thanks!
