Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.Such high doses of NSAIDs like ibubrufen can cause harm to your body,overdosing does not relieve pain but causes other problems.It would be prudent to see your PCP/doctor and get examined by him.Do you have any other problem apart from the pain in the back?
