Its definitly muscle pain in the lower middle back. I started getting it toward the end of my vacation to Greece, and now its just really bad. I'm thinking about calling a doctor or chiropractor, but if anyone knows an easier less expensive way to cure this im all ears. Ive tried the icy hot patches and Bengay but to no avail. Ibuprofen wont work either, my girlfriend tried massaging it but it always comes back. Any suggestions?
