Hello,
Thanks for your query.
It seems that you had a muscle pull while bending.Take proper rest. Hot fomentation and application of pain relieving gel will give you some relief in pain.
You can take pain killer like Ibuprofen one tablet twice a day after meals with antacid Omeprazole 20 mg along with muscle relaxant like chloraxazone. This will relax the sprained muscles.If the pain persists, get yourself examinned by your doctor

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care

Hi
Welcome to healhcaremagic
After going through your query I concluded that you are having chronic backache. It can be due to weakness of muscles and vitamin deficiencies. You can get your vitamin B12 and vitamin D3 done to know the cause.Till then you can take EvionLC,Mecobalamin and analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. You can discuss your doctor about it. Hope your query get answered. If you have any clarification then please don't hesitate to write to us. I will be happy to answer your queries. You can also write to me directly on below link:
