UPDATE #2. Slipped Disc??? I can't stand or walk. SEVERE BACK PAIN. Help. **UPDATE**
Has anyone had muscle spasms in their back before? Or anything else that would cause them not to be able to stand or walk?
I was sitting in the floor brushing my 2 DD's hair, then when I tried to stand up I felt a very sharp pain in my lower back and hips. I went weak and could hardly stand up at all. I can hardly walk. If I do walk, I have to be bent over. I cannot straighten my back. If I do try to straighten my back, then I literally cannot put my weight on my legs. It's like my hips just give out. What could be wrong with me? I'm home alone with my 3 kids and the little girl I babysit. I cannot go to the doctor today. What do I do?
Update. So today, I'm feeling a little bit better. Still in pain, but I'm actually able to stand up and walk a little bit. I'm beginning to think that it's not a muscle spasm. It kind of feels like my hips sort of popped out of place or something. I took a long hot bath last night, then went to bed. In the middle of the night my hips popped like 3 or 4 times. One time this morning they popped really loudly. It actually felt good when they popped. After they popped this morning I got up to go to the bathroom and I could actually stand up and walk. I was still in pain, but at least I'm walking. I am going to make an appointment with my doctor for next week. I think I may need to see a chiropractor or something. Any one ever have any problems like this before?
Does anyone have any idea what I can do to help with the pain until I can get to the doctor? I'm really hurting here, and I can't seem to get any replies at all. No one else has suffered with back pain ever? Please just bump of something. I need help..
Update #2. Well I went to my doctor today. He put me on a course of steroids. He said if it was any sort of a muscle sprain that the steroids would take care of it. And if the steroids don't help then he is sending me to an orthopaedic doctor for further evaluation. He said it very well could be a slipped disc because of the spinal tenderness I'm having. Does anyone know what they do for a slipped disc??? I'm very nervous now, and I hope the steroids help.
