Did you go to the hospital
Question
03:41 PM CDT
Tanner Bailey
I went to the hospital when I hurt myself picking up that box thirteen weeks ago. They looked me over but they couldn’t figure out what kind of back injury I had.

Did the hospital recommend anything
Question
03:41 PM CDT
Tanner Bailey
All they did was tell me to take ibuprofen and do physical therapy. They couldn’t even tell me what was wrong, even after an MRI. It turned up nothing.

What did the hospital diagnose you with
Question
03:42 PM CDT
Tanner Bailey
The ER did an MRI, but they can’t tell me what’s actually wrong with my back. My coworker drove me all the way out to the hospital the day I hurt myself, and there’s not a whole lot to show for it.

What brings you in today
Question

I picked up this heavy box at work–with like, sound equipment and stuff in it–and ever since then, the pain in my lower back has been killing me. I think I need to be on opioids or something.

When does your pain occur

Do you take opioids
Question
03:56 PM CDT
Tanner Bailey
I was taking them, but I’m out. It was my first time trying them, and I had my last one this morning. My friend only had a week’s worth after his surgery, so now I’m here for a prescription. My back hurts too much to wait it out.

While the medication your friend gave you was effective for pain relief and even though he no longer needed it you should only take prescriptions that a healthcare provider can safely endorse and oversee

Yeah, I guess that makes sense.

4 Prescription vs Over the Counter
Followed Up

Was it over the counter (Clarified to: Did you take ibuprofen that was just over the counter?)
Question
03:58 PM CDT
Tanner Bailey
The hospital prescribed me ibuprofen, but I just bought some over the counter — prescriptions are such a hassle to fill and pick up and all that. Figured it’d be easier. (Clarified to: If the ibuprofen was over the counter)

Prescription and over-the-counter medications are not always identical. you should always fill your prescription instead of buying them over the counter and always take your medication as prescribed

Thank you. One more thing to think about, huh?

Does anything relieve the pain
Question
03:52 PM CDT
Tanner Bailey
Sometimes just shifting around–changing the way I’m sitting or lying–can help a little. Rest helps a little bit, too. Drinking kind of worked, but I did have to go up to three drinks a day. Ibuprofen didn’t work at all, but these opioids I tried–hydrocodone and acetaminophen–they actually stopped the pain.

My mom’s has depression. She’s also an alcoholic. My dad’s pretty healthy.

Does exertion make your pain worse
Question
03:50 PM CDT
Tanner Bailey
The pain is worst when I’m doing something. Walking, lifting, bending over. It makes it hard enough to move I can’t even go to the physical therapist like the ER doctors wanted. I tried some exercises at home and they just hurt too much.

Does exercise make your pain worse
Question
03:50 PM CDT
Tanner Bailey
I can’t exercise. Which just stinks. I used to lift weights and do cardio three times a week. Now, every little thing hurts. I can’t bend or lift stuff, and even walking is just so painful. I tried some PT exercises for my back at home, but it just hurt so much.

What is the pain like
Question
03:51 PM CDT
Model Statement: “While it’s great that shifting your position can lessen your back pain, remaining otherwise sedentary can actually increase it. You may feel better by taking slow, short-paced walks, stretching, or trying specific exercises. Despite the pain involved, physical therapy could also be an effective healing tool.”

You’re welcome.

Alright, let’s do it.

Thanks for the tip.
Tanner Bailey
Got it.
Tanner Bailey
Fine by me.
Tanner Bailey
Aw, man. No more whiskey?
Tanner Bailey
I get it, but just so you know, you’re asking a lot of me.
Tanner Bailey
That sounds awful. Is this stuff really safe to take?
Tanner Bailey
I guess it’s worth the risk. I mean, I’ve got to do something.
Tanner Bailey
But it hurt so bad. That can’t be good for my back, can it?
Tanner Bailey
Alright . . . guess I gotta work through the pain a little bit.
Tanner Bailey
I mean, I know you’re not supposed to . . . but it did work a lot better than the ibuprofen.
Tanner Bailey
Okay, okay. I understand. Really. I knew it wasn’t a good idea . . . I just couldn’t find anything that worked. This time will be better.
Tanner Bailey
Thanks. You have a good one.
