Strained back muscle

I strained or tore a lumbar muscle  5 days ago and have been basically not able to function since then.  I took an extra 5 mg of hydro the first day, but the pain is relentless and my back is sore to the touch and I haven't left my house in 5 days...can't bend, cant do much of anything.  Would you go to the emergency room, stress dose, see a chiropractor or what?  I have no idea why the muscle is strained except for the weakness caused from AI.

I would go see your doctor. You may need other help like treatments. I use heat and/or ice when that happens (it happens to anyone!) and see your doc for pain management and see if you need physical therapy for pain and they also can help with stretching. Take more HC if you feel sick.
I have not had luck with chiros - but I use acupuncture instead.
Feel better!
