I over extended my back yesterday while leaning forward doing some heavy lifting.

It hurts really bad today, very tense and painful. I am only semi-comfortable if I lay flat on the carpet and don't move.

What's the best OTC medication to help with this type of pain?

I took some Bayer Rapid Headache Relief (all I had handy in the house), but it's had no effect what so ever.

For OTC stuff? Alochol works for me.

Well my hand was hurting me like hell here, since I got 5 more hours of work and couldnt drink I took one of my last real painpills.

OTC stuff never did much for me

If you got some family that has some type of opiate painkillers that they can bring to you that is your best bet, short of going to the ER whick is what you should really do anyways.

An anti-inflamitory along with some Gatorade or other sports drink helps me.

If the pain continues tomorrow I will go to the Doc. I was only able to get about 4 hours of sleep last night, and even during that, I would wake up every 30 minutes.

Call the doc and get some real narcotics for a couple days. Screaming every time you move un nerves the kids.
