    This won't go well. Go see a doctor or use teledoc.

    OP-

    I'm not a doctor, but I'm a pretty bad hypochondriac, so I've likely researched whatever it is that's ailing you...

    Might be able to help.

    Aleve. Trust me. Bad scoliosis here. Naproxen is the only thing that works.

    Yep, aleve (naproxen) is good.

    Taking any other medications, op? You always want to be careful taking nsaids with certain prescriptions.

    Did you just hurt it? Ice!
    Has it been hut for a while? Gentle heat!
    Try to rest also, but keep moving.

    How about just extra strength Tylenol? Also, any pharmacist will be able to help you pick a good otc. I'd go to a Walgreens and ask them.

    ice never worked for me , if I was not in the virus zone or I would go to a chiropractor
    for moist heat or the hospital . this flares up two or three times a year usually goes away in a week , not this time , looking to try something over the counter, new

    Just what is needed. Medical advice on a gun forum. What could go wrong?

    Go talk to a pharmacist. You're going to have to go there anyway to get the pills.

    Do not take any aspirin or Ibuprofen if taking any thing containing naproxen. The headache you will get will be worse than your back ache!

    I've been in medicine for 35 years and would ask the same question I ask the few patients that need a recommendation. "What have you taken in the past that helps?"

    Without knowing your medical history, especially if there IS some, only a fool is gonna give you any recommendation.
