Re: Back pain cannot sleep
It sounds like you have a nerve that is being comprimised. Until the sweeling goes down or the disc shifts to release the nerve, you are going to have issues. Try icing it as that helps with the swelling. Take some Naproxen(aleve) and see if that doesn't give you a little relief. It has an anti-inflammatory in it so it may help.
If this continues, you will need to see someone, just to get a handle on what is really going on. You don't want to have permanent nerve damage done.
