Back pain, cannot concentrate. How to relieve pain? Have high blood pressure

Hi Doc, I m having a serious back pain that cannot allow me to concentrate on my studies or office work. I suspect the problem has been compounded by the fact that in the past few months, i have spent alot of time typing reports and assignments in the office and at home in uncomfortable positions using both laptop and PC computers. At the moment I can concentrate and study whether on a sitting or sleeping position. Infact I also find it difficult to sleep on my bed because of the the back pain. What can I do to relieve the pain? Secondly I was recently diagnosed with high blood pressure and put on medication , after experiencing alot of flactuating blood pressure readings for a period of a bout one month. I suspect this high blood pressure could have been as a result of the pain and stress which I have been experiencing for sometime now. Could this be true, and is there anything I can do to come out of the drugs by improving on the pain and the stress? Kindly assist. Felix.

Spine Surgeon 's  Response
My dear friend you must understand that human evolved from quadrapeds. Unfortunately in this evolution to bipedal gait no extra strength to spine came. As a consequence human spine starts degenerating from an early age of 20. You must sit with spine supported and strictly avoid bending forward. Weight reduction if you are overweight can be of great help. May do back extension exercises to strengthen the back muscle. You can consult a spine specialist to see you have neurological deficit and whether require MRI.
