Re: back pain from stabbing
It could be as easy as an x-ray of your back all the way to requiring CT/MRI and consultation with a surgeon. In order to get pain medications you'd have to go to a physician and a one time prescription is likely. For ongoing pain management you'd need to see a Pain Management physician. All of this is very expensive. Do you have any options for insurance such as seeking employment which offers good benefits?
