I bent down to pick something up a couple of weeks ago and felt a kinda thud in the bottom of my back. Next day I could hardly walk. Went to the doctors, he had a quick look, gave me a prescription and told me to take painkillers too.
When I checked out the tablets he gave me they are used for the treatment of osteoarthritis. I've had a bad back occassionally before, say about 2 to 3 times a year, lasting for a few days to a week. The pain has eased a lot, but is still there. Is it possible I could have arthritis? my doc just seems to want to write a prescription out and send me on my way! how do I find out for sure? Any tips on natural pain relief?
I'm just not sure where to go from here?
