i am sorry to hear you are having back pain.. i started having horrible back pain in february that is just now starting to get better. vicodin and the heating pag, along with begging for gentle backrubs, is all i could do to manage it. for me, the other thing that made the biggest prevention of pain/stiffness is to move around - just the normal up and down from daily life was something i couldn't do, but after a while i learned that after moving around a little more each day, that it helped a lot after a while. sorry i don't have more advice for you. i hope you get some relief soon!
