Hard mattress caused severe pain

I just got back from a week long vacation, which was great except for the hard-as-concrete bed I had to sleep on. It was OK untill about the 2nd night. I started getting really bad hip and lower back pain that was shooting down both legs. I was having to take pain pills all day just to function. By the last night, I woke up at 4am to take a pill. Now I am taking around the clock. I am back iin my own bed, but I still can’t sleep. I just can’t find a comfortable position. I also just started my monthly cycle (which normally increases my inflammation). Any thoughts?

Hi swtnursed!

I know where I would be, at my Chiropractor's office!

Too hard, too soft, not sure which is worse! So sorry you had to have such a time of it on vacation. Hope you get straightened out soon!
