May I know your age?

Thanks for providing these details.
The pain what you have seems more like a mechanical pain
yes i think so 2...
as i said its much better on Mondays...
However since the pain is persistent and occurring throughout the day, it is better to get some test done to rule out XXXXXXX problem.
I would suggest X-rays of the back along with blood tests like complete blood count, ESR, calcium and Vitamin D level.
after 2 days break..
Avoid strenuous physical activities.
Follow proper ergonomics at work.
As you plan the tests, you can continue using antiinflammatory sprays that you been using.
if they fail to give you relief, you can use oral pain killer like ibuprofen 400mg twice a day for 2-3 days.
Ibuprofen is a prescription drug in India.
you will need a prescription from a doctor to avail this.
Have you followed?
Do you have any other query?
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
