What causes back pain?

I have pain in my back (right side only) that is a constant nagging fairly severe. It has me wiggling around to alleviate the pain by changing my position if I m sitting. I m able to walk and do all normal activities but I am in constant pain that prevents me from focusing on anything else other than ways to alleviate the pain. I have ste an appointment but nothing is available until 12 days from now. I am miserable and can t sleep well. I am taking 3-6 200 ibuprofen (over the counter) and they are doing nothing to help. What can I do for 12 days to survive the pain until I can get in to see a doctor?

Hi
Welcome to healhcaremagic
After going through your query I concluded that you are having chronic backache. Treatment of it is rest and analgesic such as ibuprofen which you are already taking. If pain is not relieved by this strong analgesic such as tramadol can be taken.After pain relief back excercises can be of use. You can further investigate it by MRI scan. Vitamin D3 level should be done as it is important cause of backache.You can discuss with your Doctor about it. Hope your query get answered. If you have any further questions then don't hesitate to writing to us . I will be happy to help you.
