I'm 24 years old and have already suffered from lower back pain several times in my life.
It lasts for 2 weeks now and is very bad, I mean I can't move and cry because of pain!
I've already had an appointment with my GP, who told me I had a muscle spasm and just had to wait until it recovered. He prescribed me some painkillers as well. Yesterday I had a consultation with physiotherapist, who confimed that it's a muscular pain.
I must add I'm a musician, which is very bad for back, so I think I just overdid my practise. But now I'm not playing my instrument for almost 2 weeks, stay at home and it's not getting much better!
I'm very depressed and annoyed, cause I don't know what to do. Every time I wake up I'm afraid of my pain. I use lots of painkillers and a heating patches. I do lots of exercises to stretch my muscles. I don't know why it takes so long!
Can anyone suggest me anything? Is it normal that it lasts so long? Do you know any other methods for muscle spasm?I look forward to your replies!
