Hello,

As per your history you can take tab acetaminophen for pain relief. You can apply diclofenac gel locally and can also use heating pads. If still not getting relief then i will advise you to consult with an orthopedics specialist. He may procure complete hemogram, calcium levels, vit D levels. You may also require MRI back.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
