Well this will be a hit with all you cashed up retirees!!
Anyway Ive had some reasonable back pain for the last week or so with no specific occurance to attribute it to. Anyway the last two days it had become unbearable so much so that yesterday morning at 5am we ended up at the Ballarat emergency hospital because i literally couldnt walk (collapsing in spasms whilst going to the toilet. Came very close to calling an ambulance, believe you me.
After being treated with the standard level of contempt (it would seem) the young doctor decided i was legit and gave me a shot (that turned me white as a ghost) some valium and a prescription for a variety of pain killers. Although the injury is non spinal but a periphial muscle tear in my lower back i am expected to be semi cripled for the next week or so.
Although feeling a little better now, if anything ive posted tonite is off track im using the painkillers as a scapegoat!!
