I posted mid December with excruciating pain in my lower back and buttocks. X-ray revealed partial slipped disc, I have had 3 courses of Naproxen and Tramadol and I don't start physio for another 10days.
The pain is getting worse, I am woken after a couple of hours sleep in agony because my back and buttocks just seem to freeze. I have to get up but I can't walk for several minutes because of the pain, what is this?
I have a Doctors appointment next Saturday and need some advice please. Should I ask for a scan, Amitriptyline, Valium or ? I also have a stiff and painful neck and am wondering if this could be connected.
