Hello there. I can understand your concern. I see your complains are from a long time which makes it a chronic case and not acute. The way it is to be taken further is by doing a general physical examination and performing some tests. Tests will include blood tests as well as radiological imaging. It may be due to as simple as calcium and vitamin D3 deficiency. Better to consult a orthopedician for further management. Have a calcium rich diet and expose your body to sun for vitamin D3. Tab. Supracal pro once a day for 3 months. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.

Hi there...such chronic back pain cannot be treated just by taking history. It will require detailed clinical examination and further investigations like x rays, RA factor, vitamin d, etc. Also associated symptoms like morning stiffness, pain on movements will have to be looked into. There could be many reasons for such chronic backache like spondylitis, osteoarthritis, reduced joint space, disc prolapse or herniation. So kindly consult a orthopedic for further evaluation.
