I've tried sleeping on my back, and only succeeded partly -- the pain kept me awake for most of the time. When I had to make a trip to the toilet, I didn't know how to get out of bed... I got dizzy and nauseated from the pain -- cold sweat and everything.
So today, I called in sick. I can't sit still for 8 hours. In fact, I don't know what to do: whatever I do, my back hurts. The cat is running around, and I want to pet him, but I don't know if I'll be able to get up again if I did.
Today promises much more suckage of the same sort.
