lower back pain- home remedies

I keep herniating my lower disks. I go to the chiropractor every week and it does help. Right now though I messed something up and I'm in extreme pain. I can't sit, stand, lay down. I've got these shooting pains going all the way down my leg. It usually takes a few days to get better. Should I go to a regular doctor and get some pills or just ride it out. Is there anything I can do right now, over the weekend to relieve some discomfort?

I would absolutely get it checked out.

Meanwhile, have you tried ice? It helps a lot especially for acute pain or bad flare ups.

Good Luck & please keep us posted

Re: lower back pain- home remedies

A chiropractor is not going to "fix" a herniated disc, and can in fact make them worse.

What it sounds like is that you are suffering from nerve impingement; you need to see a spine specialist. Maybe your PCP can recommend someone.
Yes, I would call and see him and see if he will give you something to help with the pain while you wait to see the specialist. He could order an MRI to get things rolling.

In the meantime, please stay away from the chiro. He could make things much, much worse and could even cause paralysis.
