Patient :I messed up my back and went to the hospital. They told me it was just sciatica, gave me meds and said the severe pain should go sway and then the rest should go away in about 6 weeks. The pain isn't getting better, it has been 3 days. I am also now having pain when I urinate. What does this mean? Should I go back?
Symptoms: Back pain, sciatica pain, painful urination, spinal pain.
