    Argh,

    After an impromtu camping trip, and sleeping on nothing but the ground sheet, my back, shoulders and neck are in so much pain.

    Will ibruprophen or paracetemol help, or is it just best to leave it and cope with it?

    Conisdering I have just done the same thing (yes, I also went camping last night with no air bed and just the ground sheet of the tent), I'd say leave it cos you will be fine.

    If it's really that bad, then yes, a standerd pain killer will do the trick.

    Thanks, probably best to leave it then, than dose up on meds.

    Next time, I vow to be more prepared.

    I went camping for BTCC at Silverstone in late October at couple of years ago and it was FREEZING! We has no heat (we walked, couldn't manage a stove!), no roll mats, a thin as hell £7 tent and a thin as hell sleeping bag... we were freezing, the ground was lumpy as and we got little sleep. Loads of shoulder and back pain, but it wears off!

    Thanks everyone! The combination of warm water and ibruprophen have eased it quite a lot :o:
