A week ago I woke up with the most excruciating pain in my left back and down my left arm – Went to the chiropractor on the Monday and she diagnosed a pinched nerve. 5 Days of treatment was not making a difference and as we don’t yet have a primary care physician I needed to go to urgent care, 3 hours later and a neck X ray confirmed the diagnosis but also got me a prescription for Steroids and some heavy duty muscle relaxants. So here I am 4 days later, a lot less pain but a very fuzzy brain. Just hope the pain does not return when I come back off the meds.
I will never under estimate back pain in anyone ever again.
