Hi, Thank you for contacting Just Answer.
It sounds like you obviously have twisted at the wrong time. Your MD was very appropriate in ordering as they did.
It sounds now like there is a disc pintching a nerve in your back.. You need to contact your MD regarding the new symptoms (by phone should be OK; since they recently examined you ).
This is something that should be evaluated with X-rays and possibly a MRI. With this being the first time you have experienced these symptoms you probably can be helped with physical therapy. For now follow the MD orders, do not do any lifting or twisting.
Some time the anti inflamitory is more effective than the Vicodan as the Vicodan does not act directly on the area of pain but instead the inability to acknowledge the pain. Frequently ice packs for 20 minutes followed by hot packs for 20 minutes, several times a day can be very helpful. The ice numbs the pain and the heat relaxed the muscle.
Hope you get better soon.
