Mods please feel free to move my post if it is in the wrong place I didnot see an injury forum. I had originally posted this over on Avant and have not received any feed back yet.
Wednesday night when I woke up and got out of bed I had this instant sharp pain stabbing me me in my lower back/ glute area on my left side. The pain was so bad I fell into the floor and could not straighten up. I litterally felt like I was going to die I was in so much pain. Thursday morning my father had to come by and dress me to get me to the doctor because I was totally debilitated. I got to my doctor's office which I have a M.D. and a chiropractor/ART provider. The doc gave me a script for 10mg loratabs, Soma (muscle relaxant), and a methlpredisolone pack. While I was in the office they iced me and gave me a local IM. My doc and chiropractor asked me what in tis world have you done to your back? I stated I had no clue I woke up in this condition. I did not have any complaints of lower back pain earlier in the day on Wednesday only upper / middle back pian I was having in my right trap. I have been icing since Friday 20 minutes on the hour and can actually walk now. The pain seems to be coming from my left glute almost where you would get an IM injection in the left rear pocket area. I can apply pressure to the area when I getting up from a sittng position and it great reduses the pain. I'm totally confused here.... Do I have a glute injury causing my glute / low back to hurt or is it my lower back the source of the pain? I can feel a spot in my upper left glute that feels almost like knotted tight muscle tissue where I feel the pain coming from.
Anyone have or had this type condition? The pain is staying local and not travelling further down my left leg.
