For the past three weeks I’ve been having severe lower back pain. At first I thought it was how I slept. I mean, that’s normal right? Blame your bed? So I thought it’d go away after awhile.
One week later and the pain was unbearable. I had a hard time walking, sitting, sleeping. Taking a shower became a long , grueling process. I finally decided to go the VA to get checked out (yes, I’m a veteran.)
I took an xray, they gave me a prescription of Prednisone, Flexidril, and Ibuprofin. The doctor told me if the pain didn’t go away or if it got worse, to come back immediately and schedule an CT scan.
My lower back is still throbbing and now I have a CT scan on Sept 6th. Horrible.
