Ensure that you maintain an appropriate posture while working or sitting or walking....Take frequent stretch breaks and drink lots of water...Discontinue using pillow while sleeping straight...Do not lift heavy objects, especially after bending down....Eat a healthy wholesome meal which should satisfy your minerals and proteins requirement...take over the counter pain medications..Consult nearest neuro physician they will do the needful.

Yes any spine and back pain may be a sign of neuro degenerative disease. But only pain will not be enough  to justify a major disease. Other problems like weakness or numbness of all limbs or any segment associated with pain should be present. Fever may or may not remain. Sleep may or may not remain normal. Dizziness may remain. Headache with backpain may be seen. In your case, you are suffering from pain only while sitting for longtime and working in chair. So, in absolutely healthy condition this should definitely be a case of spinal muscle spasm due to improper posture or excessive workload in sitting posture. Being a doctor,we too face often this problem. You should ask your bank for a better chair which is spinal friendly. Take a minute for changing your sitting posture while intensive working. This habit will help your spinal muscle. You should visit physiotherapy centre and learn about various exercises to strengthen your back muscle. Keep a chart of your back muscle strengthening exercise and practise regularly. You should take muscle relaxant, antacid and multivitamin presently. Rx, Tab Zerodol-Th 8mg 1tab once daily after food for 10days. Tab. Panido-DSR 1tab once daily before food for 10days. Tab AtoZ 1tab once daily after food for 1month. You may also consult neurophysician if you are facing any other problems untold here.
