Redeye : Frosted glass, filled 75% with cold beer, 25 % V-8 juice, couple shakes of tobassco sauce. The nutrients in the V-8 replenish the body from the effects the beer does i.e. dehydration. Try it one night, I think if you'll see the positive effects the morning after. As for the sore back, Advil because it is an anti-inflamitory/pain reliever, and lots of water. The rule of thumb on how much water is: take your body weight, divide by 2 and that is how many ounces of water to consume in a 12 hr period. The pain your are feeling is probably some torn muscle fibers and Lactic acid, and because you use your back in EVERYTHING you do it's going to hurt. Rest as much as you can, eat meals high in protein, take some multi-vitamins, when you bend over, tense or tighten your abdominal muscles, this action provides support for the injured back muscles, be sure to bend your knees first, this eliviates stress on the back musles, and heat, this relaxes the muscle while repair is in progress. It is a fact that 100% of the worlds population will inccur a back problem, take care friend.
