Not content with an exerbation of my asthma and my eczema my back decides to join in - yowser I have got the most agonising pain in the middle of my lower back. The pain is even worse than post-operative pain from Caserean and bladder surgery.
Gave in and went to Out of Hours GP, who asked me to climb on the bed!!! I can't even bear to sit or lift my leg and I'm meant to get on de bed!. Oh joy, can't have NSAID because they make me very wheezy had tried Co-Codamol 30/500 and not got any relief at all from that. Got a scrippy for 100mg Tramadol, 500g Paracetamol and Diazepam 5mg four hourly. Oh my word am scared i won't wake up with all that lot but am in so much pain will try anything. The Dr said that it is a spasm in my back. I haven't lifted anything or done anything out of the ordinary.
It hurts so much and I keep coughing with my asthma which makes it hurt more! On the positive side I can't bend at all so can't scratch my eczema on my shins which was getting a bit too shiny red and bleeding. Every cloud has a silver lining.... Hope this pain goes and hope these meds are not going to affect my asthma like the Ibuprofen did in the past. Sorry for moaning....has anyone else suffered from back spasms and if so do you have any tips please. Thank you an itchy, wheezy and in a lot of pain Lois xx
