Hi Beverlylisa,
Please can you tell what kind of job you do?
Your pain seems to be muscular pain. If you have sitting job, please maintain correct posture.
Pain can be relieved by taking Pain killer along with muscle relaxant(like Tizanidine) under medical supervision.
At present you are not taking any muscle relaxant. Medicines you have written are pain killers only.
Also get physiotherapy done.
It is advisable that first get yourself investigated by having CT/MRI thorax and Chest X-Ray PA view.
I hope this is of help to you.
