Going on my 3rd day of horrible lower back pain, this time around. It comes and goes a couple times a month. Hurts the most when I sit, or bend over. I fell and landed on my tailbone a few times in my teens and 2 winters ago. I have went to the doc the last time it was bothering me and she gave me muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatories but they just aren't working. I have tried Tylenol, Aleve, and 1600 mg Motrin, and they don't work either. I think my doc may think I am faking it, but its hurting so bad right now and I can feel it in my stomach and sometimes it travels down my legs. She tried telling me women get lower back pain a lot and it helps to stretch. I think it could be attributed to the falls I have had and maybe to the fact I had an epidural with both kids. It hurts in that area. I don't know how to convey to the doc that I need something STRONG without sounding like a drug addict! Any suggestions ? I have an 8:30 a.m appt with her tomorrow. *UPDATE* I saw the doc today and she ordered an x-ray. I should find out tomorrow what the findings are. I actually have a bladder infection. I haven't shown any symptoms, so it was a shocker! She said that it could be the cause of the pain, but she wanted to do the x-rays just to make sure it wasn't something else. She also mentioned doing stretches again. She gave me another muscle relaxer, antibiotic for the infection and some painkillers, so I am not feeling too bad now. I hope the pain is just from the infection and not something more serious. I am happy to know it wasn't just my imagination or being a wuss! Thanks for all your replies!
