On the last couple of days I think I pulled a muscle in my lower back/right buttock area, yesterday it started twitching and now today sometimes if I bend over I get really bad pins and needles in the same area. Feels like a trapped nerve and getting worse, any helpers? thanks.

I've rung NHS direct quite a few times in the past and well they suck eggs.

sympathise with you hon - i fell down stairs tuesday - im black and blue scratched and jarred from my neck down to my toes - ribs are killing me today and now i have an infection in my tooth - black and decker coming out - im falling apart

still find time for sympathy for you though - by sound of it its a trapped nerve - find osteopath in your area - costs about £30 - 35 - imo better than going to your doctors

But I'm 25 too young for an osteopath :cry:

Do you have a walk-in centre nearby? I'd go and get it checked out right away.

just looked it up on a website, so is it seen as a voodoo science or something. Wasn't Charlie's brother on Two and a half men an osteopath, everyone laughed at him :?

I think you have to be careful who you choose - that's the big problem! My sister-in-law went to one after having severe back pain, through his manipulation he managed to chip one of her discs. She ended up in hospital vowing that she'd never go to one again.

If it is a trapped nerve, it will probably rectify itself. Try to get as much walking in as possible.

Don't know, but it could be the chiropractor (title rings a bell).

yeah sorry that's what he was chiropractor

okay done some searching, and there doesn't seem to be any difference in what an osteopath does and what a chiropractor does, expect an osteopath does gentle manipulation

You need to find someone to walk over your back in 6" stillettos :thumbsup:

An Osteopath can give treatment to anybody at any age..they deal with muscle stretching and massaging mostly..I was referred to one back in March after damaging my rotator cuff (shoulder) but they were unaware it was my rotator cuff until later on. When I damaged my shoulder, god knows how it happened as I woke up one morning with bad pains in my shoulder and constant tingling down to my elbow and pains in my neck. Was referred to an Osteopath as the pain killers the Doctor had given me we not working, had to resort to buying a TENS device which worked with pain management.

Now I get physiotherapy to help me and do excersizes at home to hopefully get my arm / shoulder back to it's merry old self again.

Phoned NHS direct this morning I could barely move, told me to lay down and rest then make an appointment with the doctors for today. Went to doctors he told me I've probably sprained something or other (scientific name) and to keep moving about, take some pain killers if that doesn't help go back and see him again. He was impressed with my 230+ mile round trip.
