Back pain: Your question is confusing as I'm unsure of whether or not you're having all those symptoms along with back pain. If you are,you'll require evaluation by a neurosurgeon. For uncomplicated low back pain, try rest, hot alternating with cold applications, liniment like BenGay,and take anti-inflammatory medication like Advil or Aleve. See your physician or orthopedic specialist as needed.
