Hi all, I've had niggling back pain in the middle of my back for about 3 weeks now, worse at night and on resting, esp sitting, it feels like something is stuck in my back.. I'm going see if the GP can check it over, but I'm pretty sure it's muscular in nature. I do a job that involves heavy lifting and I've done a lot of gardening these past couple of days. I'm self medicating with voltarol gel and paracetamol but last night and earlier this week I had to use some cocodamol as it was v sore, last night in particular. I don't want to keep using codeine based analgesics though. Anyone else experiencing anything similar?
