Discussions that mention ibuprofen

Back Problems board


You may have herniated a disc at the gym. The pain you have running down your legs is from something in your lower back pressing on your sciatic nerve. An MRI will be able to show that. I am going through something similar to you, and I am your age, well, 27. Get an MRI and don't go back to the gym for awhile! Try ice, and try ibuprofen if it doesn't upset your stomach.

Thanks Megss, appreciate your response. I have been taking hydrocodone, which i hate to take, but only about 1 time a day if that at all, when the pain is bad. I stretched earlier, heating and ice, MRI is next week, i hope its nothing serious. I hope your condition gets better too :-)
