Brief Answer:
You may not get XXXXXXX with out prescription

Detailed Answer:

I have studied your case.

You may not get XXXXXXX with out prescription; consult your doctor or online pharmacy.

When such patient comes to my hospital we usually take x ray spine or if required MRI to see for any nerve compression.
Medication like methylcobalamine and analgesic will reduce pain; you can take them consulting your treating doctor.

Some life style modifications to prevent pain– Take break every 40 min from computer/work and do some lumbar rotation, stretches, walk and get back to work. Sit with taking support to your back, and good posture in bed which may also aggravate pain.
If required you may need blood investigation for polyarthritis.
