You must get examined for neurological problems. Ct scan and MRI scan should be done by advice of neurologist if he consider necessary. The status of nervous system will decide the treatment regimen. Vague anlgesics and belts only not helping. Visit a Neurologist.
Have a Healthful day..

thanks for choosing health care magic.You should take help of a spine surgeon.See is most of case the reason being postural one where in the reason some problem with sleeping or seating which leads continuous strain on back and backache.Please keep in mind that long term use of belt is not advisable as weakens your muscles and further it can aggravate the condition.For short time only belt is advisable.Also take help of physiotherapist to strengthen your back muscles so that recurrent back ache can be prevented.
