Backache!

The last several days my back hurts on the left side in the waist area. Not bad but, but!! I tried aspirin, etc but nothing seems to help.

Any suggestions for me?

Leona

Do you have a heating pad or one of those Therma care things that heats up and sticks on like a big bandage. Sometimes heat helps- a warm/ hot bath could help too. Feel better!

If it's muscular, you could try alternating heat and ice. 20 min with heat, wait an hour, then 20 minutes with ice, and repeat throughout the day. The heat will help loosen and relax the muscle and the ice will help with any swelling.

If it doesn't feel muscular, you should probably follow up with your doctor. If it's a pinched nerve, it could require better drugs. If it's kidneys or another organ, you could need antibiotics, etc. I get kidney stones and my pain's around the same area as yours.

So sorry to hear about your backache. I'm just getting over a muscle spasm in my lower back, and it was AWFUL! I'm much better now but I keep feeling that same muscle give tiny little twinges. Enough already!

I got huge relief from ice. Heat helped some, but ice was the miracle for me. You can make a nice, flexible ice pack using gallon zip lock bags. Mix 1C rubbing alcohol and 2C water in one zip bag. Then double bag with another to avoid leakage. Lay the bag of solution flat in your freezer and once frozen, it's kind of slushy and can mold to your body, and its VERRRRYY cold!

Hope you find the treatment that's best for you and you're feeling better soon!
