Thanks for this question.

I'm Dr. Phil and I'm ready to help

This much of that type of medicine at your age is too much

I wouldn't recommend it

If you haven't had xrays of your spine yet, that needs to be done.

This could be a compression fracture. These are certain types of fractures that can occur nearly spontaneously in folks your age.

You can take tylenol instead. That is safer

but you need xrays ASAP
