In case anyone was wondering 900mg Tylenol + 20mg Codeine + 800 mg Ibuprofren worked like a charm :)

stretching after taking what you took might help too.

alternate the two meds, take the apap/codeine every 4 hours or so, and the ibu doses in between

Well sweets you know that I am allll about the opiates for back pain. I recently discovered bayer back and body which does help some but I don't have aspirin or Tylenol by itself to test which helps more. Advil doesn't do anything, neither does aleve. You should still take for inflammation though.

I am currently on bed rest. It helped to not wake up with back pain but I had it as soon as I stood up. Gr!

I am currently doing Space's plan. I take naproxen with the Vic and then in between I take the bayer.

Do you have a strong core? If you excersize your core back etc it will most likely get better. This is of course you dont have a condition that makes your back hurt. I have weak abs and a really strong back and if I dont excersize I can get back pain really bad. If I excersize problem solved. When I just loaf around sometimes my back has hurt so bad that I almost throw up, yeah its gotten prettt darn bad. I sometimes have to take lortabs that I am prescribed for it. Heck one morning I couldnt get out of bed it hurt so bad.

Anti-inflammatory gel and a dead flat warm floor. A rug or something because cold (in my case anyway) makes my back as rigid as the floor itself.

Swimming.

My parents have a friend who had polio as a child and walks with a heavy limp. He is in his late 50's. I spoke to him the other day about my back pain and he said his doctor asked him recently if he had ever had back problems from the polio and limp.
He told his doctor that he had never had so much as a twinge in his back his whole life.
The doctor asked if he did any exercises etc and he replied that he went to the local swimming pool 3x times a week and swam laps.

Swimming is the main reason he doesn't have any back problems.

Walking helps too.

My husband has a disc herniation and he uses an anti inflammatory gel as well. Back aches are terrible. They can just suck the joy and energy out of your life.
Hope it will pass soon.
