Stabbing pain in lower spine, inflamed vertebrate. Lumps developed after having anti inflammatories. How to cure?

Hi, for the past couple of months I have had a stabbing pain in my lower spine , my doctor told me it is probably an inflamed vertabrae and has now given me anti inflammatories twice, I have since developed a few small lumps in my stomach area, the larger ones under my left rib cage which are painful when sitting and some around the area where I would normally get menstural pains, there are a few smaller ones in other areas of my abdomen . I am also feeling constantly exhausted and fuzzy headed. My doctor has now told me the tiredness is probably the anti-inflammatories and the lumps just fatty tissues, I stopped the anti inflammatories but this has made no difference. I am really panicking and dont seem to be getting anywhere with my doctor, what do you think?

Hello Dear and welcome
Firstly for your back pain please follow certain steps:
1. Restrict the movement of your spine. If possible wear Lumbosacrla belt.
2. Do hot and Ice fermentation at the site.
3. Can take analgesic and anti-inflammatory gel to reduce pain.
4. Apply local anti-inflammatory gel at the site and do not massage it.
5. Take complete bed rest till the pain subsides.
6. Use hard bed to sleep and avoid pillow.
7. Do MRI spine if these measures does not helps you.
Now related to your lumps they needs to be physically examined and I my opinion if your are overweight and above 30 this may be due to increased lipid components. Else they are cyst or tissue collection. Consult your skin specialist, he/she can guide you to a right path.
