I myself have herniated discs (8 to be precise) and i'm pregnant with my 3rd kid. I've been living in pain for
over 9 years, i'm allergic to all pain
meds, so I can't even take them for the pain! However, I do have this lotion, that is a muscle relazer, kind of like icy-hot but it doesn't soak into your skin. I use this at night before bed, every night (doctor approved) and it works wonders on my back to relieve pain through the day!
