    In the right side of my upper back.

    Nothing has to trigger them, they just happen.

    Usually I have one at least once a week. They are so painful that you feel like going to the ER!!!!

    I have had several bad ones that have traveled down my right arm, leaving me holding my right arm up for several days because of the pain left behind.

    What works for me is more simple than the rest of you. If I feel the first incling of one coming on, I immediately take Advil and sit straight up on my couch and do not move for a long time.

    Also it is important not to tighten up, and just relax through it, this helps.

    Sometimes this remedy does not work, but most of the time it helps alot.

    Love and prayers,
    Brenda

    It felt as if my back was being torn apart.I've had really bad legs before, but this pain is horrendous-worse than having a baby without meds

    .I did the sitting up straight too.It's the only thing to do.When that happened the sleeplessness started and went on for a week.Pain pills and sleeping pills have mostly taken care of that.I haven't had those for a long time.I hope that yours get better too.Linda P.S.I say this as my back is really burning now!
