Thanks for your query.
There are two questions which you have asked:
1) Long term effects of indocap: This medication when used over a long period of time can cause serious adverse effects like kidney disease, gastritis or ulcers. So I would suggest that you see a spine surgeon for more definitive cure of PIVD
2) It is difficult tosay if your back pain is due to kidney problem. We could get a blood urea, creatinine, urine analysis and Ultrasound of the kidneys done to determine the health of your kidneys.

Hope this helps
Good luck.
