I have bad lower back pain what to do
See your doctor first, and based on his recommendations, a physical therapist. Now, if someone says you need surgery, please seek out additional opinions, preferably from a specialist. I know too many who have opted for surgery for immediate relief – think other remedies should be tried first.
@trellg132 What has caused your back pain? Just some things that help me a heating pad, ice alternate them Epsom salts magnesium and Vit D3 if you have to seek a 2nd opinion do it as you are your own advocate about your health . I also use a Tens unit to relax muscles . Good luck backs are difficult . But don't just jump into back surgery unless you have researched and explored all options. Let us know we all care here

Back surgery will be my last option

Doctor gave me some cream to rub on my elbow and back I also have golfers elbow
@trellg132 I use different creams one I like is Arnica cream for pain there is one for brusies so check them out . For my entrapped nerve I use Fibro cream its for Fibro and Neuropathy . In the morning for my nerve pain in thighs I use Hemp oil and rub in.
Diclofenac sodium topical gel 1% is wat the doctor prescribed me
How gud is the hemp oil I was thinking of using cbd oil
@trellg132 Is it helping you any ? Keep on it if so. Its Voltaren gel. I just use regular hemp oil organic of course. You just have to try all things to see what helps with back pain. I haven't found one certain thing that does the trick all the time. Try it and see if the cbd will help.
The voltaren has a Lot of don't mix with this if you have this are that
@trellg132 Yes most meds interact with so many even herbal meds I use a website I like http://www.Drugs.com
