number one step is to see either neuro or ortho surgeon who specializes on spine. he may want you to go through physical therapy. he may prescribe an injection to aid in your ability to exercise. dont lift anything. dont sit for long periods of time. try walking. you may be able to beat this with conservative treatment. if pain is really bad you could also contact a pain management dr. the surgeon is definitely the most knowledgeable dr to see regarding diagnosis and treatment. it must be tough to handle 25 students when you are hurting......pete
