I've had low back ache for a year now I'm 49 female . GP just prescribes pain killers and physio. Backache is getting worse 3 days ago I came out in a hot rash and now I'm in agony and can hardly walk or bend my right knee as it is so painful and swollen . What is happening?

Call and go see a chiropractic center or orthopedic doctor. GP are not trained far enough to treat past "general" first point of service exams. I'm sorry for your experience, but I can't know what might be going on. I saw a chiropractor years ago after I woke unable to stand up straight. Two days prior I'd ended up being transported by ambulance to the er. I'd got up to go use the restroom and got back in bed. When I reached for covers a hot shooting pain went from my neck to my tailbone and my locked down with whiplash. I'd had a car accident months before. It took multiple visits to the Chirop to get better, but they had me walking straight up after my second visit.
