Has anyone managed to 'cure' their back pain? My back 'goes' every few weeks and I have 3 days of agony before it goes back to normal. Co-codamol or ibuprofen don't even touch the edges of the pain which makes me feel like I will pass out. I am a midwife so am really reluctant to take time off work and mum of two so can't just lie in bed, who eats well, doesn't drink or smoke and exercises regularly and it is beginning to make me depressed. Any advice appreciated.
