Alongside of the previous responses, I'll add what I do for back pain. I'm also on warfarin. I drink a couple glasses of water, with a teaspoon of baking soda mixed in, spaced several hours apart. It helps flush excess lactic acid out of the muscle tissue. If you decide to try this, remember to take any antacid (baking soda) at least two hours before and two hours after any other meds. Antacids interfere with absorption.
Like with anything else, ask your doc first.
