    I’m lying on a heating pad right now. It feels good but indeed, seems to make things worse. I’ll switch to ice later tonight. Icing my back just seemed weird, but, I’m generally a believer.

    Yeah.... I did my house build with PEX. A major bonus is it isn’t ruined by freezing, plus, when it does freeze, since it’s flexible it self-clears once pressure is reestablished. I guess that’s...
