I have had lower back pain for a week now. Would you recommend that I call my primary Dr. or go to a walk-in ortho clinic?

Back pain

Lower back pain is considered acute from onset to first 4 weeks. Most cases of lower back pain are short term and result from sprain or strain of back muscles. You should call you Family practice or Internal medicine doctor to get recommendations- if pain is there for more then few days. Per back pain facts from https://www.ninds.nih.gov/ - The most common first line treatment is hot or cold pack to ease pain and stretching exercises .Limited amount of over the counter pain meds like acetaminophen or NSAIDS ( ibuprofen ) may help with pain. Clinical history and exam is sufficient to make diagnosis for most cases and rarely any x-rays are done for acute back pain.

I find that so many doctors don't really listen to a patient's medical history, (or the reason they are in for an appointment). I have been to doctors that act like they know more about my medical history than I do. Or they will tell me to keep taking the medicine that I am reporting to be problematic for me. This has happened to me twice in the past eight months by two different doctors whom I have not seen before, or once before?
Why won't doctors LISTEN to the patients? And recognize that we know about our health history?
