    I had the stair chair from hell yesterday that went way wrong and now i'm in a massive amount of pain shooting up my spine. I do icy hot and aleve for pain but wondering if there is some magic remedy I'm unaware of that one of you might know.

    My question: what do you do to help when your back hurts? got any tips?

    A chiropractor can work miracles, believe me. I can recommend a really good one if you like.

    Heating pad.
    Anytime I've had back pain of any kind, a good nights sleep on a heating pad (set to low or medium, high can burn after a while) has done wonders.
    Motrin or 4 Advil, heating pad, no booze, and lay prone.

    you are NOT helpful, smartass.

    everyone else? thank you guys

    i wish but no. i'm about to just do a regular hot bath. I have to go to bed early to be up for work at 3am so it cuts into my options for tonight.

    I went to a physical therapist today who gave me a bunch of awesome pointers of stretches to do to help the pain along with a light massage. that helped for a bit but now the pain is back badly. At least it's just muscle and i didn't fuck up m spine or pop a disc

    Go to your doctor. Get an MRI if possible. Pain killers are great, but they only mask the pain. Shooting pain up your back is not something you want to fool with.

    I hope you get it looked at least... then decide whats the best treatment for you.
    My pain is mostly from stress and work related movements no injury.
    I try to stick to the holistic treatments like massage but...when its really bad I go for the 1600mg Motrin with a Flexeril chaser.

    Best bet is like everyone else says get it looked at Don't be Stubborn.

    Per doctors orders. Works best when combined with a mix of percosett and vicodin. That's what Dr. Feelgood, MD said.
