GP visit. back pain

so i went to my gp. my back was so sore that i decided i couldnt manage any longer with just heat pads and over the counter pain relief. so i made the appointment yesterday afternoon.
my pa kristen took me this morning. it wasnt my regular gp because he was too busy to see me so i had to see his partner but that was ok. he had a med student in with him. it must be the time of year for med students since dr. barry had one too with her last week. anyway.
I told him how the pain was and what it was like. he examined my back and said my lower back muscles seemed really tense and tight and it looked like somehow i’d done something to them. i must have, because i cant bend over without there being a lot of pain, i cant sit up after lying down without shooting pain going down my back, and when i am just sitting the pain is there too. its a constant.
anywho he gave me anti inflamitories. for a week. i am to take them twice a day with food. he told me they might upset my stomach but so far they havent. altho i’ve only taken one tablet.
he said if i am not better after a week that i need to go back to see him. i’m glad i went. i was worried that something could be really wrong with my back, but now that its just muscle pain i am not so worried anymore.
