Normally I avoid medications such as pain relievers, the only time i take ibuprofin is when i've got a headache that's so bad I can't even lift my head.
But currently I can't seem to handle the lower back pain anymore.
I've always had problems with my lower back...(since i was 18). But it's been especially aggravated as I've tried to reduce my weight, walk, simple exercises/stretches, etc. I'm frustrated because I'm trying to improve the muscles and such around my lower back, but I can't do even the simple ones due to the pain.
So my question is, what are the negatives of using say, one pill a day (mornings) of the Exedrin Back & Body for a couple of weeks while I work on strengthening and stretching that lower back (and reducing weight, obviously)?
