Over xmas I had the stomach flu and thought I had pulled a muscle in my back because of it. 1 month later after many dr's visits, physio, the pain was so bad I ended up at emerg and I had abscessed ovaries that had imploded. Emerg surgery, antibiotics galore and now it's a month later and I still have the same pain that started this whole thing. I am starting to get really scared. I asked my surgeon about it, and she doesn't think it's a gynecological issue, my gp put me back on antibiotics, and I am a week into clyndomycin (sp?) but the pain persists. I always feel as if my side is hot, and the muscle feels like it is always spasming. The doctors have felt the spasms, yet I still get the impression that they think it's in my head. I am normally very healthy and well. This is driving me NUTS!
My name is Liz, I suffer from chronic back pain. Maybe you did more than pull a muscle, you could have herniated a disc. Does the pain radiate down your buttocks and leg. If so, that's probably what happened. See if you can schedule an appt. with a spine Doc. Only way to really tell is with an MRI. Try to do it soon so maybe you can get answers and pain relief soon. Let me know how you are doing. Bless
Val; I would finish this round of antibiotics and if it continues to go back to your doctor or see another doctor have some test done pain does not just come from nowhere they should be able to give you an answer. I do know after surgery there are a lot of nerves etc that take awhile to reattach etc but you should not have to live with the pain. And you sure don't want to take any chances. Have your regular doctor maybe refer you to a back doctor if they don't want to do anything.
