Cassius clued me in to a link between the Iliotibial Bands and lower back pain
Ive been stretching (concentrating on the Iliotibial Bands, but still stretching all of the leg muscles) with elastic bands (as described in the sticky threads) with very good results thus far. I'm cautiously optimistic that I may have an old problem solved, but I won't call it fixed for sure till Ive had a few months with no issues.

I've been trying those same stretches and they kind of work. Still I think I'm going to take some more pain killers ( even though I don't trust them), I don't know which kind would be appropiate.

I was taking muscle relaxers but I ran out, I just took some arcoxia which is supposed to be a non-steroideal antiinflamatory and painkiller. I'll wait till my next appoinment t get the pills I was taking.
