Hi Helmsa19. I recommend getting rid of heat. It causes inflammation which will make your low back get worse. I am a massage therapist and yoga instructor and I live with Fibro. I am on 200mg Lyrica twice daily. I have chronic low back pain. The only thing that helps me is to lay on the floor with an ice pack on my low back and my legs up on the seat of my couch (like I'm sitting in a chair that fell over backwards). Be sure your knees and hips are bent at a 90 degree angle. This takes all pressure off the lumbar spine (low back) and allows it to recover from a day of strain. Also, try pulling your knees up to your chest and rock from side to side every morning and every evening (in your bed). Good luck. I hope this helps.
