    I've had a surgery four years ago due to three ruptured discs.
    I've tried everything from acupuncture to pain killers.
    I can say for sure that valerian root doesn't work for muscle pain. Especially, if you took lot of pain medications before.
    Best thing for your lower back is inversion table.

    And as for anxiety usage, I think the results vary greatly since the cause of one's anxiety is totally unique to that individual. You would probably have to take significant amount.

    Good luck.

    it is more of a muscle relaxer than a pain reliever.
