Patient : I have recently hurt my back and thought nothing of it. I continued to work in which my back has gotten worse. I went to the doctors and he said I may have pulled a muscle or something and I needed to take a week off to rest. Despite this I continued to work despite the pain and it's been 3 days since I saw the doctor and it's twice as bad. I can hardly walk and my job requires me to walk about 15km a day. What should I do I can't loose my job a I have bank loans and bills to pay.
