Re: Back pain

View Post
Lower back issues are a common problem with IT folks since we sit a lot, often in terrible chairs and at weird angles. Whenever I have an attack, I buy a big bottle of wine and pour a really hot bath along with a big glass of wine and soak for a while.
Don't you think the wine would have more effect if you drank it?

I'll also pop a few of the bayer 500mg 'back pain' variety of aspirins if the bath doesn't kill it. Hasn't failed me yet.
Ibuprofen is my drug of choice. Has slightly more of an anti-inflammatory effect than aspirin (although it is quite closely related) and can be tolerated slightly better, although in prolonged use gastric issues can still occur.

I'm lucky enough to not suffer any such effects, which is just as well as I take 1800mg per day
