    Hi this my first lower back pain ever I am 46 year old women who is always active all day taking care of toddlers all day as well as being a clean freak ... I am very surprised to have a stiff back at first and gradually increased to severe pain where it hurts to move which really frustrated me because I not use to having limitations... I was thinking of anything that I did to have caused this but I didn't exercise or carry anything heavy but nothing besides my normal day ... I went Emergency and they did X-ray and they said everything looked ok and I had muscle strain and will just gradually go away with time ...

      Hello Joanne The experts at the hospital are most likely correct, as muscle strain can sometimes happen after several weeks of overuse, rather than one episode of heavy lifting. Cleaning and childcare involves a lot of back work and so you'd be in a category of people prone to occasional injury. Apply some of our Atrogel in addition to any painkillers you may be taking for additional relief.
