I messed up my back a while ago, not sure exactly how i messed it up but one morning i woke up and my back was killing me. That was nearly a month ago and i’ve been to a chiropractor because i had some visits paid off so i had some visits i could use up there, and he just really seemed to hurt me more than help me. My work sent me to a doctor but she didn’t really do shit. Just poked at it a little and felt around and told me i had a lumbar sprain and some muscle spasms and just ice and anti-inflammatories.
I ice atleast 3 times a day and take ibuprofen almost every day now. My back will seem like it is getting better and then i will bend over and it feels like i got shot in the back. It kills and every time i fall down and just sort of lay there in pain. LIke i said i don’t have health insurance so if I can help not going to a specialist I’d like that cause i’m not exactly loaded. But you gotta do what you gotta do.
But any suggestions on who to see? What to do? How to sleep better? Oh, and i did get a different bed but it is harder and I’ve heard from a ton of people that harder beds are generally better for your back, is this true? Also, i haven’t been lifting for the past 3 weeks because of my back and i need it to get better so i can get back in the gym!!
