Back pain - August 3rd 2013, 01:52 PM

I suffer with fairly bad back pain and I need some ways to make it a bit better. I don't want to go to the doctors because I already know what's causing the pain and I know all they'll do is give me tablets, and I can't swallow tablets anyway. The mattress I sleep on is broken and so is causing my back to hurt. I know it's the mattress because if I sleep elsewhere, my back is absolutely fine the next day. I can't get a new mattress at the moment, I'm not sure on the exact reasons but I know my parents have tried and failed. It's a couple of months until I move out, but I can't deal with the pain every day for that long.

I take asprin to try and make it hurt less but it's becoming less effective. Today I'm trying my best not to cry because no position I sit it makes it hurt less. Are there any simple techniques I can use to help my back a bit? Like I said, I don't see the point of seeing a doctor because I know a new mattress would help, I just cant get one of those. Plus, it seems pointless getting a new mattress when my bed is being trashed soon anyway. Anything that might help is welcome. Sorry to bug people.

You can do exercises to strengthen your core, and that'll take some of the strain off of your back.

Sorry I couldn't be there, I was tied to a rocking chair.

I have back problems too have you tried sleeping on top of some thick blankets or pillows? Putting a sleeping bag on top of your bed might help too. One thing I have is a foam pad that goes on top of the mattress. it's comfy
