Hi I injured my lower back at the begining of january at work (I am an Early childhood educator) I went to my doctors he did x-rays on my lower back, it came back normal. I was still in pain when I had to bend down or get up from the chair. He suggested that I go to pt for my back and I have been going three times aweek . I thought that it was helping me because there was hardly an pain and I could move around better. Well on Friday as I was getting ready to go to work, I felt this reall sharp pain on my lower back going all the way down to my legs. It was excuriating. I could not move at all. I took my back pills and it still was hurting me in fact when I woke up yesterday morning the pain was so intense that I couldn't even stand up. I went to the walk in clinic the doctor prescribed me some tylenol 3 but i am still in pain. could anyone tell me if this is a hurinated disk or something else. I would really appreciate some feedback.
