I hurt my back and neck a couple of weeks ago and have been in a lot of pain.
I am seeing a chiropractor, but in the meantime, I really need something to help me deal with the pain. I have taken Tylenol and Iboprofen on and off, and those do help a little, but I am uneasy taking any medication on such a regular basis (atleast two times a day, in order to really help). My chiropractor also gave me some biofreeze gel. He said that it was OK to use while breastfeeding, but I just want to be sure.
So my question is this...do I just need to chill out and take the Ibuprofen twice a day (is it really not a big deal?), is it OK to use the Biofreeze? and does anyone else have any other suggestions on safe ways to deal with neck pain?
Thanks a ton. I am having a really hard time dealing with the pain and taking care of two kids! I need some relief fast!
