Back pain. Taken Tylenol and Robaxin. Difficulty sitting. What medicine can I try?

i have SEVER muscle pain in lower back the muscle spasms or freezes for a few seconds every step or to. I have had sciatica for the past 32 yrs I have been off work for 13 mths just went back wed 12hr nights in health care, very strenuous job and the pain is unexplainable. I took 2 Tylenol 3 just before going in then about 2 hrs later a robaxin 750mg and nothing. I held in there for 4 hrs I don't know how, got replaced and left. To sit down after the first 3 hrs was so hard to do, it made it easier to walk out to the car. I need something better than this, I have to be able to perform my duties pain free. I have taken medication my whole life due to migraines, have been on every medication, therefore most medications I take are not low dosages, then I become afraid to take them because I don't want to become addicted to anything. I only take pills when l am in severe pain, maybe that's the problem. I need to know what medication I can try what l can do before my next shift in a few days.
Thank you

The symptoms do not resolve until the subsidence of the inflammation and release of compression on the nerve fibers. The treatment option available are neurotransmitter block agents like Gabapentin along with painkillers and vitamin B complex. appropriate lying position like on hard surface and physiotherapy.

Consult Neurologist for better opinion.
