Thanks for writing in.
Any history of associated cough/ high grade fever?
Any history of trauma or fall?
Upper back pain
or lower back pain?
Any stomach pain?
With the brief history you have mentioned, the possibilities I can think of are sprained(pulled muscle) back, peptic ulcer
, pleurisy or pneumonia
Kindly provide further details for a more thorough assessment.
I would advise you to visit a doctor for a detailed examination and evaluation.
In the meantime, drink warm water at regular intervals.
Apply volini (diclofenac
) gel at the site where it hurts. 15 minutes later apply hot fomentation intermittently. Do this routine 3 times a day.
Please do not take so many pain relief medications. You might end up with side effects like gastritis. Take pain relief medication after food .
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
