Does Ibuprofen work?: If you get relief from ibuprofen, then wait it out. It might go away. But if Ibuprofen does not work or pain persists anyways, then see doctor to get evaluated.

Back pain: If it is debilitating, i think, you should see your doctor for history, exam , pain management, pt or diagnostic test. In the mean while you can add otc pain patch or bengay ointment to advil (ibuprofen). Please read back pain http:// doctorrajput.Com.
