    I had back surgery on October 2nd and I have been in a major flare ever since. Every muscle in my body is aching and stiff. Not sure what to do....still taking pain meds and meds for muscle spams in my back but they are not doing anything for the rest of my aches/pains. Anyone have any ideas ? I even tried Theraflu for body aches last night, it just made me go to sleep and I still hurt when I woke up. I'd appreciate any suggestions ;)

    Jumpinjuice:

    I feel so sorry for what you are going through.

    Can you use a really good heating pad and use it through the day?

    It may help.

    Feel better soon!

    Thank-you both for your kind words and I have tried the heating pad, for short periods of time, and it works for awhile. I don't know about massage yet, I have a Dr. appt next week and I will ask. Thanks again !
