    what do you guys do about back pain? The only thing that helps relieve my back achiness and pain is vicoden. And I know I cant stay on pain meds....plus I dont have anymore.
    the achiness is enough to drive one insane..any advice???

    I use Lidoderm patches. They are stick on lidocaine patches that you leave on for 12 hours and then remove for 12 hours. It helps alot but does not take the really deep part of the pain away. They are only by prescription so ask your doc about them.
    Good Luck....

    I am thinking on a couple of differnt routes, massage and Chiro...I have lower back pain and terrible right side sciatic which I was massaging myself the other day and now my leg is going numb and tingling! I really hate that feeling...
