  • I had the same pain earlier this week. It was so bad and it was shooting through my back. I couldn't stand up straight and I contemplated going to the emergency room. Someone on CM advised me to switch from heat pads to icing my back every 10 mins. Plus taking Ibuprofen. It helped but I was still in a lot of pain. But i stuck with it and did it everyday and i continued to take a ton of Ibuprofen. Now I am feeling better. I even bought some Salonpas pain relieving pads and now I am feeling a lot better. I still have back pain but every day it gets better. Thanks to the cm moms who gave me some advice. I also had to take it easy but I periodically did some stretches. It takes time but it does get better.
