Hello baboopu

Thanks for posting your query

You are suffering from Reumatoid arthritis & psoriasis and you had injury over lower back after fall from truck.

So you might have soft tissue injury over lower back or vertebral fracture.

You need a x-ray to rule out fracture.

So you have to visit an orthopaedic surgeon for detailed exam & x-ray as required. Mean while you should take absolute bed rest.

Since it is a case of accident u may get X-ray n ensure is there any fracture.
In case of fracture go to orthopedic surgen.

Both steps u have to take, twice a day for 15 days
3. drink magnetic water
