I've had lower back pain for 9years now. I don't have insurance so I've never been diagnosed. The past year the pain is getting to be unbearable at times. But I'm in constant pain. Should I go to the ER for help?
I can't tell you what to do or what is wrong but I'll share what happened to me. I hurt my back in February of this year. I went to ER, they gave me 3 pain narcotics shots after I sat waiting for 5 hours with my husband, they sent me home. I continued to have pain and my Dr wouldn't do anything. I found out 2 weeks later when someone FINALLY ordered xrays, I broke a vertebrae in my lumbar back. I've still had a lot of pain . I also have 3 herniated discs in my lumbar spine and Sciatica down both legs shade I fall often.
This is what happened to me. If you are having a lot of pain, get checked out. Make someone listen to you if you have to. Keep after them. I had to. That's how I found out I have a broken back!
