Greg - Hope you're feeling better soon! Back pain sucks!
I get back cramps/spasms along with migraines once a month for 3 - 7 days at a time. Why can't I just get regular tummy cramps like most woman?!
Have you tried soaking in a hot Linament bath? Add about 1/16 cup Linament liquid while filling your bath water, then enjoy soaking. It amazing how well it works! It's basically a stronger version of IcyHot in a liquid form that's sold in most feed & tack stores & is typically used on Equine.
Depending on your skin sensitivity, it can be used full strength directly applied to the skin. **(Never apply directly to skin right after a showering or swimming as your pores will be open! )** I found out the hard way after taking a hot shower as it can/will cause redness, blisters &/or burn severely! I couldn't get back in a COOL shower to get it washed off quick enough - it burned/stung that bad! Although my back felt sooo much better, it took almost 45 minutes for the redness & cool sting to go away.

I don't have a bath big enough for me. The only bath we have is kid sized. Even my wife says it's too small.
Thanks for the idea though.
OK, another way to do it would be to apply straight Linament right before you get in the shower & let the hot water run for a few minutes where you applied it before using soap. If you have a massaging type shower head, use that too! By doing it this way, it dilutes the Linament & also allows you to wash off the strong mentholated smell at the same time! You should notice a deep cooling sensation while drying off from your shower. (The best way to describe it is would be a fan blowing on cold water)
