A long long time ago a spliff used to work but I need an alternative these days. This month my lower back is killing me (top of my bum), it's like flippin labour without the contractions!
Has anyone got a secret remedy?

primrose something or other is suppsoed to work, but i normally just use ibuprofen or parecetamol, oh and hold a hot water bottle where it hurts

MagnesiumOk tablets, but they're not instant and you're supposed to take them all the time. Miracle cure for me though.

OK, but right now - do I go for the painkillers or the rum?

Don't go to bed, keep stretching your legs, that should make it go for a while.
