Hello - I have had low back pain for about a week, steadily becoming more severe. I cannot bend to put socks on - it hurts in every position. It spreads across my entire lower back equally. I ve been taking muscle relaxers & pain killers, with some relief. What KIND of doctor should I see, so I do not waste time & money?
