Does sound like a flare-up, unless you’ve done an injury to yourself that’s causing it. I was told that back pain typically doesn’t set in till 24 hours after the damage is caused because it takes that long for inflammation to build. Is that a possibility? If not, I would start keeping a symptoms diary, recording the level of pain three times a day. This to be shown/read out to your MS nurse (say) on Monday, if things haven’t settled, so that s/he can recommend treatment. In the meantime, it has to be rest and as many distracting activities that you can think of to divert the brain, Think chocolate, DVDs, wine etc. x
