my back pain started the end of September after a camping trip. The back pain quickly turned into a terrible feeling of cramping muscles down my right leg. I went to the walk in clinic and was prescribed a muscle relaxor and ibuprofen- which do nothing. Tired heat, ice, stretching, baths, chiropractor, etc.
I went to my pcp two week later and was prescribed gabapentin. I’m not sure how much of this you need to take to make it work- but they don’t seem to touch the pain.
Today, I had to go to urgent care because the cramping was so intense in my leg that I couldn’t stand or sit. I only get about 80% relief from laying on a flat surface. I was prescribed another muscle relaxer and a steriod.
I’m worried that I won’t be able to fly on a plane for a trip that is in exactly 2 weeks because of the pain, and I’ve waited a year for this trip not to mention that I can’t keep missing work.
