Spent most of yesterday horizontal. I took my pills and slept. By evening, my back was much improved. Today, I'll take anti-inflammatories alone and see how I feel after work -- I can certainly take the muscle relaxer in the evening if needed. It's a definite non-driving medication for me.
I certainly hurt a lot less this morning. In hindsight, I've been in a fair amount of pain for a couple of weeks and have been refusing to face it.
