I "tweeked" my back a few days ago. I was sick for a few days with a cold and running a fever so I thought the back trouble was just aches from being sick. Well the cold is better and the fever is gone but my back is worse. I can't stand up straight and the pain is going down to my hips. Sometimes it hurts just to stand still. The problem is in the center of my lower back, just above my butt. I have never had back problems in my life and my husband seems to think I may have slipped a disc. Has anyone ever had a slipped disc and if so what did it feel like. What did you do for it? I am not in so much pain that I am ready to run off to see a doctor, but I don't want to wait until I can't move before I decide to go. Looking for imput.
