Hello I work in our nursery class and I recently hurt my back picking up one of sen children who jolted to the side and I pulled my back. It was so painful that I went to the docs and was given some meds on Monday. They don't seem to be providing any relief and I can only take paracetamol with them. I continued in work all this week with heat packs on etc but it has been so hard in the nursery setting as you're constantly moving, bending, needed to help children etc and I've been in agony. Today however I made it even worse as I slipped on the pavement outside of school on the way to our harvest service. I came home at dinner as I'm in agony. I really don't want to let the team or children down but I can't see how I can rest up as recommended by the doctor in the job I'm in. I have an emergency appointment booked in for the morning but just don't know what to do. Has anyone else been in a similar situation?
