I am 43, having a severe flare up. Herniated disk. L3 maybe?...i dont remember. It's been 3 days, and each day it gets worse. Right now it takes me about 15-20 minutes to get out of bed to use the bathroom. And just as much time to get back in. I'm 900 miles from home in a hotel. In town here for work. Right now I fear it will keep getting worse and I won't be able to get up. And I'm alone. I don't want any meds. Well,...im taking ibuprofen. The last time I had a flare up like this, it was about 2 years ago.it was about of a week before I could walk. I just don't know what to do. Geez...im a mess.
