This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
This is indeed concerning.
This suggests slipped discs at your spine.
When the vertebral bodies are not well aligned, the slipping takes place with heavy lifting or bending activities.
Rapid development of numbness of buttock, legs, loss of bowel or bladder control will warrant urgent evaluation in the ER.
Still, your current symptoms can be considered emergency as well.
The swelling and inflammation can be controlled by the oral prednisone ( steroid).
You should apply lot of ice 10 minutes every 3 hours.
You can use Over the counter Aleve 2 tabs twice daily.
Back brace can be used for support.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
