Seriously--I am ready to try almost anything. :eek:

Amidst an unrelated health crisis w/my husband, my back "went out" on me Monday night, while I was making my daughter's lunch for the next day. By morning, I literally could not move. This hasn't happened to me before--at least not this bad.

I've been to the doctor and consulted a physical therapist (my wonderful BIL). They gave me a steroid shot on Tuesday, and some Soma, and I started using a TENS unit on my back. I limped through the next couple of days (literally), but the pain got worse and worse. Yesterday, my doc called in a round of oral steroids, and this is day two of those. I don't seem to be getting any significant relief, and I have GOT to be better by Monday at 5AM. I just don't have a choice.

SO. Since, so far, I'm doing just about everything medical that I can, does anyone have any wild home-remedies passed down for when you're "down in your back?" Ice feels pretty good, but that's about all I've come up with outside of the drugs.
