View Full Version : I threw my back out!!!

This past saturday morning, oh my god. This is the first time I've been in the upright position for more than 5 minutes. I can't even knit!! :verysad:

I seem to carry my stress in my upper back and then WHAMMO! Just move the wrong way and I'm bed ridden. Even moving my arms in the slightest irritates my back.

I wonder if it may be a pinched nerve?? Very sharp stabbing pain. And nothing helps ease the pain. I've taken Ibuprofen, Relafen, a muscle relaxant (Skelaxin), I've stretched (that was yesterday) had my hubby massage. NOTHING is working. Oh and I've also used heat and ice.

By the way, I didn't take all those pills at once! :crying: Maybe that's the secret. Just kidding.

hhhhhheeeeeeelllllllllllpppppppp mmmmmmmeeeeeeeeee........

The best thing my DH has ever done for his back when it goes out is to see a chiropractor and his massage therapist. All the meds in the world do nothing for him. He prefers going to these two over seeing a medical doctor anyday. But if the pain continues, you should really see someone.

Hope you feel better soon!
