Hurt My Back On Saturday
Mon, 04-23-2012 - 11:54pm

Hi Ladies, I could use some P&PT's nothing baby related. I was doing a chairty hot dog sale, and my son showed up I picked him up and sat down with him and all the sudden I had shooting pain through out my back. Within 15 mintues I couldn't even walk. I went to a care clinic and they said that I strained the muscle, but that since I was pregnant all I could take for pain was tylenol.

I've pretty much spend every moment since then in bed. I can't even go to the bathroom by myself DH has to help me sit down, and get up. I went and saw the fill in doctor today, who said that I have to "just get over it" and start using it. I've been trying to, but it really hurts. He wouldn't write me a note for work so I have to go in tomorrow and I'm very nervous about it.

If I could have some P&PT that I am able to work, and that my back gets better soon.

Thanks Ladies,

Oh no!!! I'm so sorry do your pain. I'm disgusted by any MD who would tell you to just get over it. Personally I would complain. It I'm very picky about medical care.
It could be a muscle of nerve pinch that will just take some time to heal. Worst case it could be a disc issue but since your pregnant they wouldn't do imaging or medicate you. Im sending p&pt that it's just a stubborn muscle and it feels better soon!!!
