"Why am I carrying a box full of rocks???!!! Stupid!"

Alongside abdominal pain, low back pain is one of the most common complaints used to score narcotics. Classified as acute, subacute, or chronic, low back pain can reflect any of a myriad of underlying causes, but can certainly, without fail, be treated with unholy amounts of intravenous Dilaudid (Hydromorphone).

Unfortunately, the American College of Physicians released guidelines in February 2017 that basically said to treat low back pain with anything ANYTHING (for the love of God) other than narcotics, much to the chagrin of patients and health care professionals, especially those that like to intubate for airway protection.[1]
