    Did your husband do something to pull a muscle or his back somehow? Did he carry too much weight or turn the wrong way? You might want to try OTC meds like Aleve and also hot/cold compresses and complete rest for a few days, if after 2 weeks or so it does not get better, tell your hubby to go see his primary care physician to maybe explore this further. BTW, I am not a Doctor, I am just telling you what my own Doc told me to do when I hurt my back....... Wink

    Take care and I hope that he gets better!
