Hi , welcome to HCM,
In case or renal cell carcinoma, metastasis in bone specially in the spine is most common.
So, the back pain you told is particularly a bone pain.
Spasmoproxyvone is a drug which is famous for its anti- smooth muscle pain action. It does not have any effect on pain causing due to disease in bone.
Now, in this condition consult with your treating doctor for adding a centrally acting pain inhibitor like tramadol group of drug.
And consult for investigations to detect any bony lesion.
Thats all.
