I'm right there with 'ya man. I didn't break anything but have been enduring an episode of severe sciatica (basically intense lower back pain) since Sunday. It really, really sucks and the pain is unrelenting. Finally got into the chiro yesterday and she shot me with that damned little gun, lasered me and shocked me. I go back tomorrow.
I could have ridden to work every day this week, too. It blows. I haven't even been able to go to work. The constant pain gets really old quickly. Actually, sitting on the KLR is more comfortable than sitting in my Tacoma which is just a godawful experience, especially since I have a clutch. But, I can't even get on and off the KLR so that's not an option, plus I don't trust my left leg enough.
Not my worst episode, though. One time my wife was gone on vacation and it flared up and at one point I got stuck in my bed because it was too painful to get out. I tried a couple of times and actually almost blacked out. I was stuck there for like 8 hours and at one point had to just grab a pillow and piss on it and throw it away when I was able to get up. I didn't want to worry my wife since she was having a good time so I just told her one of the dogs pissed on the pillow.
Hang in there, dude! At least you were doing something worthwhile when it happened.
Hope you're not laid up too long. I believe with an injury like that all you can do is let it heal on its own, huh?
Oh, and consider yourself damned fortunate your ass isn't your moneymaker!
