I was fine and suddenly 2 mornings ago I awoke to my back hurting. It's so bad I can barely walk. I can barely get out of bed. Moving makes me scream and shriek. The pain is a 9. I am a Sahm I can't be this way. I don't have a doctor no pcp so I'd need to head to urgent care.

Walking sitting up laying down sitting on the toilet hurts SOOOOOO badly.

---------
Dr just came in he says I have a herniated disc L4 he did some tests and now he is having me get an IV for pain to help me at least get around he said I will still have pain but it should be tolerable and he will send me home with more pain meds.

You might want to get to a doctor asap. You might have an ectopic pregnancy. It happened to my mom after her tubes were tied!

Ok is it an emergency? Our insurance isn't that great so I'm concerned with cost

Go to urgent care.
Or try Aleve/Naproxen
Have a friend bring you marijuana to try

Because everyone has friends who use marijuana? I don't know a single person who uses it.

Go to the ER. Is it hurting on the sides of your lower back? It could be a kidney infection. I had one, I ended up in the hospital for a week. The pain was the worst thing I ever felt.
