Multiple studies provide strong evidence that nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) prescribed at regular intervals provide pain relief for both acute and chronic low back pain. Studies comparing the effectiveness of NSAIDs have not found any particular NSAID to be superior to others. Tricyclic antidepressants are an effective treatment for many painful conditions, including lower back pain. The anticonvulsants, particularly gabapentin and pregabalin, are widely used for back pain and have very good benefits with low side effects. You can also try lidocaine patches, creams or lotions from the pharmacy. The next step would be Myofascial Pain and Trigger Point Injections or Acupuncture.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
