Discussions that mention ibuprofen

Back Problems board

It is likely that you have a strained/pulled muscle. Try Ibuprofen and heat/ice whichever makes it feel better. Do you have a history of back problems? Does the pain radiate down you leg or in your buttock? Take it easy for a few days and if it worsens or doesn't get better then I would see your GP and he can order some tests to check it all out. Sorry you are feeling bad. Keep us posted and take care.
