So yes. I spent a few hours in the ER last night after the clinic said they couldn't do anything for me. X-Rays and a CT Scan later, and I am diagnosed with multiple bulging disks. I was prescribed 5 days worth of superpainkillers, and then sent home. If the pain continues for more than 8 weeks or so, physical therapy or surgery might have to be an option. I am just thrilled... (cue eyeroll).
On the upside, I now am forced to spend loads of time reading and writing like I have wished I had time to do for MONTHS now. So excuse me while I enjoy a cup of my favorite tea and crack open the spine of a new book. =)
