Okay so long story short, my fiance' and I were on our way home from our son's swim class with our 8 month old daughter, and he didn't see a car coming when he went to make his turn cross the intersection. Now my car is totaled, I have neck and back spasms and a lump with swelling on my lower back. If I walk for a period or even just stand, my lower back starts to swell up again. The doctors gave me pain meds and sent me on my way. I am not one for taking pain medicine, but this pain gets so bad that I throw up. I do not have any type of medical insurance and the hospitals say they can't do anything that I need to go see a specialist. I have already gained 3 pounds since June 24th, and I am sure I have lost muscle weight so it is more like 6+ pounds. I am trying to stay on track with my diet, but for me it is so hard since exercise goes hand in hand with my diet for me. I am getting depressed because I want to work out, I know it makes me feel better, but I really just can't. Does anyone have any experience with any of this? Please don't just say go to a doctor because I already know I need to do that, I just don't have the money to, so that is out of the question for now. Thanks for any other advice.
