Sitting, standing of walking have become lessons in pain, which runs from bad to excruciating. I've found one position, where I lay on one side that keeps it to a dull ache but it's hard to type from that position.
The good doctor says no more than four Aleves over twenty four hours. If that doesn't work, come in and they will have a look.
I will go in and tell him six Aleves in twenty four hours keeps my sanity and he can run some bloodwork to see if I fubared my liver.
Update: I climbed from bed this morning is the same pain I've had for days. After two Aleves, I was able to function; even drive, so I went to work.
Mother Nature decided we would not work, so I went to the doctor, explained my symptoms and was asked I ever had a back injury. Officially no, but considering my experiences, I probably have had a least one, or a dozen.
Long story short: Take it easy; don't lift anything heavy; quit taking my cholesterol medication; come back in two weeks and a new medication: Sulindac
Sulindac is a heavy duty non-steroid anti-inflamatory medication. Whether it works will soon be determined. If it allows me to sleep, it will be wonderful.
