Back pain all week, progressively got worse as week went on. Went to A and E this morning as no sleep for 3 days due to pain got told slipped disc. In agony ( worse than child birth) and been told to rest for couple of days, then take gentle movements. Said minimum of 2 weeks off work but would not give me note as quote "you can self certificate for a week'". Got to go to own GP before the end of the week if more mobile to get a note. So much pain, in tears!!!!! Any one got any suggestions or help? Feel so sorry for myself sob sob I know it's how long is a piece of string and everyone is different but ouchhhhhhh.
