Having back pain, neck pain, tiredness due to working on computer. Prescribed medicines, no relief. Suggestions?

Hi this is Abid from Islamabad, I am 40 years male and having early tiredness and back pain problem. From last 8-10 years I normally have pain in my shoulders and upper back, I gets tired now too early while sitting in front of computer/laptop. I have been advised by a local doctor to lift-up your laptop parallel to your face, I did the same, even then my upper back and shoulders get freeze/shall when I return back from office. Unless I do not sleep four an 0.5-to-1.0 hours after my return to home I do not fee comfortable to continue rest of the day activities I have also been advised following medicine, which does not seems working effectively. Loxonin (pain killer) Vegan (a multi vitamin) Your kind response/consultancy in this regard would be appreciated. Thanx.. & Regards Abid Z 92-0321-0000

your symptoms push me to actually think you have a proximal muscle weakness. It could be good to exclude inflammatory diseases that could actually explain some of your symptoms. Doing blood tests for markers of inflammation (ESR, CRP, ect) could be helpful. I suggest you visit an internist/rhumatologist for a proper evaluation.
Hope this helps,
Thanks, Luchuo, MD.
