I am sorry you have this pain

how old are you?

working hard physically can cause muscle aches and pains in bones and joints and muscles in the back.

have you tried any ice packs or heating pads for your back

you may benefit from taking some anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen 200mg 2-3 pills every 6-8 hours with food in your stomach with plenty of water to see if that helps decrease pain

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
