They've ordered an MRI for my back.  I will likely be having it Tuesday.  My back is not improving despite all of the treatments and they've decided that they want to look deeper.  In the meantime I am icing the ever living hell out of myself and am considering going to the hot tub at the gym tonight while my ladies box.  Can't hurt, right?

hope you figure it out. One thing to kepe in mind about inflammation (from personal experience I can say that) icing is good. heating, though it feels good, may be making it worse. you shouldn't heat inflammation (if that is what it is). the MRI should help in narrowing that down. good luck.

I'm icing the crap out of myself! I'm pretty much in love with my Peas ice pack from CVS. BEST EVER.

i personally love cherry pit packs. they're made from cherry pits (obviously) and the pits retain both cold and hot very well. they'll stay cold for 30 mins, but the best part is that they don't cause pain like applying something too cold. (or heat for that matter). if you have problems on a regular basis, these are so worth investing in. (I have 4 of them).

The Peas bags are very similar, though they are made with gel dots. I will probably look into some of these cherry pit packs, though, as I suspect my back is going to be an issue for years to come, especially when I get pregnant.
