Thank you for your question.

Sorry to hear about your problem.

Do you have any other medical problems?

Are you on any medications for anything?

Please let me know.

I would strongly recommend that with the severe back pain that you are having, you need to be seen ASAP. If you cannot get to your regular doctor, I would recommend going to the emergency to get a script of a stronger pain medication to help with the pain.

If the pain is radiating to any of the legs, you should have MRI of your lower back done to rule out any disc disease pressing on any nerves in the back.
