You poor poor thing, theres nothing worse then a bad back. Although heat may give you comfort you should actually put an ice pack on it as heat can aggravate the injury. RICE- Rest Ice Compression and Elevate (actually not sure how you elevate your back so maybe leave that step out!) Hope you feel better soon x

I've had a very sore back since Fri, it's not a pulled muscle, but I've been using a hot water bottle on it all weekend.

Thanks girls, im still in bits, went to the doc today and he told me to take solphadine and try get my hands on a tens machine. He told me to use a heat pad but there wasnt much more he can do. Hopefully ill feel better in the morning.
