Hi. Backpain is a common problem. It is mainly due to bad posture and activities like bad reading position, bad chairs n bad bed etc. Stand and walk upright without stooping. Sit in a proper chair. Take 5-10 min breaks every 2 hrs. Sleep on a flat bed. Do exercise daily. While sleeping keep a rolled towel under your knees. Back pain gets relieved by lifestyle modifications. Thank you.

Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. SPRING BEDS, FOLDING BEDS OR THICK MATRESS ARE HARMFUL Use no pillow under the head. DO HOT FOMANTATION. Paracetamol 250mg OD & SOS x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab OD x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again.. Do not ignore .It could be beginning of a serious problem.

You probably had ctev. The discrepancy stays but if you want length equalization that can be done but if you want increase in girth that' s not possible as muscle will increase with exercise only.

I suggest you follow the below for your condition: take mag phos 6x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and ice packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately.

I would like to suggest you to modified your life style as well as work place as most of the back pain and neck pain occurs becuase of fail to follow the ergonomics so modified your work place accoding to the ergonomics and also avoid to sit for a longer time. Take a move every hour or two hour so it will reduced the stress on back muscles as well as neck muscles and do regualarly neck and back exercise then also it will not relieve and you getting stiffness in spine as well as night ache then I suggest you to do the blood report of hla-b27.
