I've seen my husband mow the lawn exactly once in the 31 years we've been together.How lucky you are.

It's always been me who mows the lawn and keep up with everything else.Gasoline, maintenance didn't bother me.It was pulling that cord.I'm short.Had to put a leg on the lower bar just to get it pulled.

Our sons took over when they were old enough.That stopped when they grew up.Got jobs and started college.Now it's back to me.

I after posting and asking Andy about the mower went out and pulled weeds, straightened up my favorite flower beds.When I was done my neck was hurting.Didn't think anything of it except that maybe I had done too much.

Woke up the next morning with such a backache,I couldn't even stand up straight.My husband took me in to see a Chiropractor.He could barely do the pressure point,weight exam on me.He said that my back from the neck to lower back was so inflamed he didn't want to examine me any farther until the he got the xrays back.I'll know next week just how bad my back is really shot.

Yep, it's time to hire someone.

Oh no Munky! Back pane is the pits. I hope it feels better soon. I've been having back pain and Robaxin is my friend. I get the one with no pain reliever, so I can take a strong pain reliever if the Robaxin doesn't handle it.

It's been a few days sleepless nights.I'm not feeling any different the pain is pretty bad.If I get cranky around here let me know.I'll go take a nap!

What is Robaxin?
I've only been taking otc tylenol.Just one when I wake up.1 in the afternoon.1before bed.

Being over dosed by Dr's in the past I'm extremely paranoid about taking anything beyond what I'm already taking.

Robaxin is the brand name for the generic methocarbamol. It's a muscle relaxant.

Your body actually heals better when your pain is kept under control. If you feel that the prescribed dose is too much, talk to your doctor about cutting back. You only need enough to relieve the pain and that amount varies from person to person.

Getting enough sleep is also I'm for healing.

I just put a pan of pita chips into the oven to bake. I sprayed them with olive oil cooking spray and sprinkled them with salt and Penzey's salt-free Mural of Flavor. Smells wonderful and goes great with tzatziki,which I have left over from yesterday.

Robaxin is the brand name of a muscle relaxant specifically for back pain. It comes in different versions and don't need a prescription. The versions with ibuprofen are a lot more expensive and at my pharmacy it would be cheaper to buy the pain reliever separately. If you are concerned about taking too much, talk to the pharmacist. I find most pharmacists like to talk about the stuff they spent all those years learning.

Ten minutes later. We had to check it for quality, of course.

Rx is required in the USA. At least for some strengths.
