Hi I injured my back a few weeks ago. I have been seeing a chiropractor but I feel like I am getting worse. I’m a stay at home mother and I don’t think I’ve let myself over do it but occ pain meds are not working for me. Is there anyway I can get a new pain script.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Adderall10 and Zoloft 100

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I know that I do have 2 pinched nerves and a slipped disc right at this mom for sure

140 stay at home mother I am very active. I injured myself getting babies out of my truck.
Doctor: Edgar Rubio Villegas, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Dear *****ient. in your case, it is, in fact, a spinal cord injury to be investigated.
I suggest performing a lumbar spine MRi.
It should be confirmed that the injury you have has not progressed and is further injuring the nerve.
Typically, spinal injuries are caused by weakness of the spinal musculature that generates instability and injury of the discs and nerves.
In your case, once the MRI is done, it should be suggested to start rehabilitation to strengthen the muscle.
it is very important to perform spinal stretches.
That is why I suggest the following treatment with Ibuprofen analgesic of 400mg every 12 hours, and to maintain a fixed muscle relaxant like Cyclobenzaprine 10mg every 12 hours for 5 days.
Rest should be maintained and you should go to the doctor's office.
