Hi everyone.my name is Amelia and a few weeks ago I injured my back lifting a patient off the floor.I did the usual treatments that the docs recommended.After which I progressively return to work.The day before yesterday I woke up feeling a little off.That morning I felt a sharp pain in my lower back.Then a few minutes later I got some numbness in my legs.By the time I got to work(50 min. later),I couldn't get out of my car.I was scared ****less and i couldn't feel my legs and my spine was on fire.I was brought to the emergency to be treated with lack of care.My doctor had barely examined me,gave me several types of pain pills throughout an 8 hour span,then sent me home with several pain meds prescriptions.No xray,scans or mri's,not even a blood test.He didn't even listen to me when I told him that this pain didn't feel like my back pain i had sustain the last time.I am quite angry since the back pain is still very present.And yes I'm taking my pain meds.They don't seem to work.All I feel is very,very sleepy and ALOT of PAIN!!Can anyone help or have any suggestions?!
