Suggest treatment for sever back pain

Hi Doctor

I was suffering from severe back pain and did physiotherapy treatment for one month but without any results.
Later another doctor advised me to stop physio and he prescribed me some medicines. After having those medicines I got full relief within 2 days - sudden relief. But now the thing is in morning time I cant walk or stand for not more than 5 mins, but I can bend my body and touch my hands on the floor. What I observed is if I sit for 1 to 2 hrs then I can walk and stand for longtime and in evening time I am able to do excercise like pushup and situp .
Kindly please advise me

Hello,

I have studied your case with diligence.

There can be possibility of ankylosing spondylitis.
Ankylosing spondylitis typically involve spine and hips with other large joint also. There is reduced chest function in this disease. Stiffness in spine is increased you have such stiffness in spine?
Clinical examination is also required to diagnose it.
You can do blood test for HLA-B27 to confirm it.
MRI spine will help.

If all test are normal you may need proper exercises and lifestyle modifications.
You can consult me at my clinic also.

Till time continue medication and physiotherapy.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Take care
