See your doctor: You will need to be evaluated by your doctor or a spinal specialist if your symptoms are persisting. Treatment all depends on the exact diagnosis, and specific location of your pain and symptoms. So following appropriate evaluation including examination, then the best treatment plan will be developed. It may include nsaids (if not medically contraindicated), physical therapy, home exercises.
