    Yes, an MRI may show up what's wrong? hopefully with a bit of physio youl be sorted in no time, let us know how you get on but take it easy in the mean time and try not to aggravate it even more, try ice packs 20 mins on 20 mins off wrapped in a tea towel 😊

    @stephanie1122,

    I am so sorry that you hurt enuf to just have to scream for help from the old timers who have crawled up so we can help you. Now this is only what I

    would do. If you can not lay down and get ANY relief, then get to a hospital asap. At least they will get you through the night and in turn.they mayl just give you some for a few days, more impotantly you will get a refferrall to see a good aà"" :ortho. Then pray .Soom afterthey will say its nothing PRAY PRAY HARD

      Are you in the US Lillorie? I'm asking because although it would be wonderful if she could go to the emergency room and expect some pain relief but most emergency rooms will not do that. Most people have a very unsatisfactory experience in the emergency room. The emergency room doctors are afraid to give any kind of pain relief to patients and just having back pain will not constitute a hospital stay.

    Sorry to hear about your back troubles... Sounds like you are going through a lot of pain and discomfort. I was going through the same thing for 3-4 years until i found a book called Healing Back Pain By: Dr John E Sarno. After finding a cure for my back pain i said i will reach out to everyone i can. 

    3 Years ago I was in a car accident that caused a whip lash in my neck which resulted into major Neck, Back and Left Arm pain. After MRI's and Ex rays doctors told me i have a C5-C6 herniated Disc. After 2 years of Physical Therapy, injections, seeing neurologist and spinal doctors nothing could help. My Back surgeon advised surgery and I thought that was my way out of this misery. 3 months later I had the surgery and i finally started feeling better! I continued to get rehab and massages for a year and a half after the surgery and i felt great! All of a sudden the pain came back with a vengeance. At this point i could not bare the pain i was dealing with.. I could not sleep, lift, sit or lay down without feeling some kind of pain or extreme discomfort. 

    This is when i found Dr. John E Sarno's Book. I've been reading all of his books this year and i can finally say i cured my back pain. This may sound crazy to some of you but what most of you are experiencing is not actually "back pain". It is oxygen deprivation that is making you think you have a back abnormality. We have a conscious and an unconscious mind. Most of you may have thoughts or repressed anger in your unconscious that you may have never addressed or faced. What your body is doing is distracting your mind from reaching into your unconscious by causing you to focus on a physical pain such as Back pain, Leg pain, Sciatica and so on. 

    Unfortunately Dr. John E Sarno is no longer with us and has passed this summer. I do not work for him or any of his colleagues trying to sell his book. I'm just a normal guy that experienced all of your troubles. Its an easy read and the book is 8 dollars on Amazon. Give it a try and you will thank me later.
