Advice on back pain

Filed under: commenting comments — Clint1911 @ 2:46 pm

Fellow Ohio gun blogger, Breda is in serious back pain.

Having been there at least once myself I offered the following.

Get Well soon.

I had a very similar problem, only I could barely walk straight for 6 months.

Calcium and magnesium pills help.

Do not take multiple pain killers at the same time. (the liver doesn’t fix that kind of damage)

Aleve is great. But watch out for side effects. They are listed on the box but heart arrhythmia needs to be addressed immediately (it is very rare however.)

If the bed is too soft, wooden boards between the mattress and box spring help.

Or use cushions or blankets on the floor.

Camping stores have mats for placing under sleeping bags. Those may be useful.

Call or email if you have questions.

Hopes this helps. And hope to see you at the rifle range this summer.

For everyone else, take good care of your back.
