Hey Dr.LJ,
I know how much you guys love the medical questions but I've googled the net and haven't found much. Basically yesterday I got a bit of back pain, it was mostly fine but occasionally I would get these small lower back spasms. Anyone know what the deal is on that?

Then to relieve myself I took 2 super strength Ibuprofen (Advil, basically) and I went to sleep and was knocked out for 17 hours! It did say only take 1 tablet every 4 hours, but does anyone really follow that directive? Has anyone ever been knocked out by advil? I didn't know there was a sleepy side effect.

Feel free to add any funny anecdotes involving medication.
