When it rain it pours

I'm not complaining per say about my life because things could be much worse. However just when it seem that I've gotten this thing down(making right choices) something comes alone and well, slow me down or shall I say hinder my progress. I was in a accident a few months back. I did hurt my back, but I was told that it wasn't broken or fractured, it may have been just sprung or maybe a pulled muscle.
Now here I'm today, under a doctor who is saying no lifting over 10lb, no standing for long periods of time, No shifting(meaning the truck). I'm now on muscle relaxers and meds for imflamation and pain. that seem to be swelling me up I think. It's not what I'm eating, It has to be maybe a side effect from the meds. Anyway that is what I'm doing until I get that MRI, I 'm feeling a little better as I was working through the pain, not knowing what is going on really with my back. I hope it is something simple that can be delt with without surgery. That is the last thing I need.
It's hard everyday dealing with this thing, but I tell myself this too shall pass. So while I'm focusing on healthy choices , I 'm trying to keep my head up at what these meds are doing. Hoping that everything will work itself out soon. I still believe I will reach my goals, I still believe in me.
