Back Problems board

Good evening, everyone...How is everyone feeling tonight? I hope "pain-free." I tried something new today in desperation. Walgreen's was running a sale on Cura-Heat's non-medicinal, safe, warming therapy packs. There were actually 4 instead of 3 in each box, and each box contained coupons for other Cura-Heat packs. They were buy one box, get one free. The ad on the box claims to provide 12 hours of "long relief." I was skeptical at first but decided to try them anyway. You do not place them directly on the skin because it could cause irritation or burns. You place them on your clothing, where you are having discomfort. I placed mine on my underwear on my lower lumbar spine area. I placed one on at 1:00 pm today, and it is still hot at 9:21 pm. I figured it be an excellent idea for "on the go." I am to the point now that none of my medications are working. I am afraid to tell my doctor this because I do not want her to think that I am only after pain medication. Not even my Soma muscle relaxers are providing any pain relief from the severe muscle spasms. I have not found out yet what she wants to do about the nerve compression in my wrists and hands. I hope everyone enjoys a "pain-free" weekend...I will probably be spending a lot of time on the "boards" this weekend!
