No injuries. Low back pain. mild during day. worse at night. I thought maybe it was the mattress, so I turned it around.
it was worse - severe- 2 days ago, I had to take some narcotics I had left over from a foot surgery to get pain relief. I was up all night in pain. However, it is 2 days later, and I have just mild to moderate pain now. heat did not help. Ice helps a little.
no fever. I have to support my back to walk when I first wake up. After a while I can walk better. I feel better when sitting, than when I am laying down or standing. When I stand, it feels like the base of my spine is being crushed. Sitting provides a counterforce upward on my spine and seems to neutralize the downwards pressure.
