Painkillers are the wrong place to start trying to treat your back. They will lead you to do things your back may not be able to do, and, may result in you hurting yourself, rather than helping.

Get some expert advise. Find a physical therapist in your area, or, find a physiatrist, someone who can tell you how to fix your back and make it go away for good so you don't have to suffer any more. Dont start with drugs and dont start with surgeons. Short-cuts never work. MH
