Ive had 2 ops which have solved radial pain but back pain is crippling. I useparacetamol, pregsbslin, amytrptyline, lyaric, risperidone and 1 or 2 other pills. But the other day my chemist after 5 yesrs on these patches said no hot baths. I have hot hot bsth once maybe twice a day to ease my back pain. Oyher than profusely sweating and occasional left arm feeling heavy and sore I'm ok.
