A Plea For Help

My back hurts. Pretty badly right now, but not unbearably. I'm looking for remedies that don't include waiting rooms in hospitals and painkillers.

Chiropractors (completely misspelled) are quacks. If it's muscle pain... massage. But honestly I always fall back on pain killers. Maybe you could cut a tylenol in half or something.

There is an old slogan about back pain : Pain is the warning , rest is the cure.
They mean mental and phyicial rest..I have been telling this to doctors for years. They never say any thing. Rest doesn't mean collapse

My mommy said maybe a hot shower or some time in a hottub would relax your muscles. Or, maybe you could get one of those heat-pads for middle-aged people with sore achy joints?

yoga! my back has been hurting for a while and this afternoon i did the hot yoga for 90 minutes and though the pain isn't completely gone, it's definitely diminished. i feel a lot more flexible and comfortable too.

try a hot bath and then some stretching.

All these remedies seem so...normal. I wanted an excuse to see what accupuncture was like, but I guess not.

Oh, yeah: Showers don't help. Maybe one of my organs has died? I WAS just joking with my roommate about my stomach rebelling and crawling out through my esophagus. I'll keep you updated on that.

Also also: Stretching doesn't help either. I'm still waiting for Harry Potter to come and magic me well. Harry -- I'm looking at you right now.

You could always try CALLING YOUR MOTHER, that would help tremendously. The pain is probably guilt building up from not calling her first...
