Back Pain Update

I called the doctor today to try and get some muscle relaxers or pain killers, but he won't prescribe them without seeing me first, so I go in tomorrow afternoon. I had a follow-up appointment scheduled for next week so I'll just knock it out of the way tomorrow as well.

I feel much better today. Sore and achy, but nothing like the excruciating pain of yesterday. About two years ago Steven and I were wrestling on the couch (No, really. We were. Get your mind out of the gutter, you perv!) and I feel off. I fell on top of the huge portable phone striking my back, just above my hip. In doing so, I pinched a nerve. This pain is extremely similar to that, so I'm sure this is nothing more than a muscle/nerve issue. Catherine had suggested that it might be a kidney stone. Unfortunately, I got kidney stones right after I graduated from college (I had no insurance, having just gotten moved off of my parents' and it sucked massively!) and I'm positive this isn't that again.

Anyway, thank you all so much for your kind words and concern. :-) Hopefully I'll get some good medicine from the doctor and I'll be good as new soon.

hope you feel better (with minimal use of painkillers), and make sure that you and Steven try some different positions next time you "wrestle"... yanno, something that won't strain your back so much... (;

wrestling on the couch, huh!?! Ye we've heard that one before ;)

Hoping it is nothing more then pulled muscles. Who thought a gym could be so dangerous. Sometimes bath salts will help with back pain. Hope your back feels better soon.
