For more than 40 years I have been suffering from back pain with many lumbago episodes caused by the inter-vertebral discs of the lumbar vertebrae. Despite going to many different therapies and sleeping on a Tempur mattress, I could rarely sleep or lie down for more than 6 hours at a time and often had to get up because of the pain. For a while now, I have been rubbing Hot Shot Cream into my lumbar region in the morning and in the evening.Today I not only have less back pain (sometimes barely noticeable), I can now even sleep for more than 8 hours or lie in bed without having to wake up because of the pain! Besides, I had no lumbago. For me, this is a huge gain in quality of life.
