NSAIDs : Assuming the arthritis being asked about is osteoarthritis.....The most common first line medicine is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (nsaid). Many fall in this category including naprosyn, (naproxen) ibuprofen, diclfenac, etc. If these medications and physical therapy fail, then injections with local anesthetics and corticosteroids are often recommended.

No association: There is no direct link between high cholesterol or triglycerides and joint pain. However, having extra weight and obesity can certainly put strain on the joints. Obesity is often associated with high cholesterol and triglycerides, so this could be the connection.

Very unusual: It is much more likely that you have a primary cause in your mid-back than having the pain come from an asymptomatic cervical disk.

Thanks for your quick reply! Thanks for the quick reply, I used to do weight lifting when I was younger so perhaps it caused some longer term effects.
