Suffer from migraines and overall bad back. Muscle spasms and back pain are pretty much constant(car accident in 1976). Hate to take anything stronger than tylenol but gave it a shot this weekend when i almost could not move. Worked like a charm with almost no side effects(just a little sleepy). Would highly recommend
