Welcome to HCM

The pain you have been disturbed by are actually originating from your vertebral column most obviously as a result of you inappropriate lying posture that have caused the vertebral column straightening thus putting pressure on the spinal cord all along its ways and cause pain along the nerve distribution.

The treatment options are:

Correct you lying posture. Try to use hard under surface like plain ground with a low width mattress. Avoid spring mattresses.

Consult physiotherapist for stretching exercises.

Using anti inflammatory drugs like diclofenic sodium along with vit B complex

Bed rest for atleast two weeks.

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
Your pain seems to be mechanical in origin due to bad posture and carrying heavy weight.Mechanical back pain implies the source of pain is in the spine and/or its supporting structure. The surrounding muscles and ligaments may develop reactive spasm and pain.
The treatment usually involves rest with pain killers in combination with the muscle relaxants along with good physiotherapy exercises.
You can do a hot fomentation and apply a local analgesic gel on the area to relieve the spasm.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...

Thanks for writing to us.
The pains that you have described are likely to be due to a muscular pain most likely caused by a wrong body posture. Taking mild pain killers and muscle relaxants will bring a short term relief. Regular exercise will be helpful.
