      I get these about every 6 months. For the first day I am resting and applying ice first, then heat. I do 10 minutes of cold and 20 of heat for about 2-3 hours. I set myself up on the couch in a comfy position and try to think about anything else. During the second and third day after I am moving a bit more, trying to stretch, and doing the ice/hot again. It seems to help me a lot

      I’m sorry you are in pain, this is what the doctor wanted to do I said no. But I hope the medicine starts helping you soon. Let me know how you keep feeling
