... pain killers. over the counter pain medication seems to work better. why?
The only thing I can come up with is when you take the opiates they loosen your lower back up enough that you end up aggravating the sciatic nerve. If you have a herniated disc then that can put pressure on the nerve. Over the counter pain relievers are anything near what opiates are and therefore your back stays rigid. Are you carrying weight in your stomach?? Your stomack and lower back muscles are really important to keep the back strait. If you are out of shape with those muscles or you have a gut then chances are you will have back pain..Good luck and try and get out for a walk a couple times a day as it does wonders for the body whether you think you need it or not...
