Any OTC med replace methocarbamol 500mg? lower back pain, X-ray's 4 month ago, dr said I need this. Pain back do I need go back dr or can take OTC med

Went to PCP because my son was having back pain. X-rays showed nothing, so now an MRI. Pain on spine. What might they be looking for? Worried.
Looking for anything: Hate to be vague, but the point of the MRI is to really see the spine at a detail that the xray can't.

All my best. ...Read more

I have lower back pain. X rays reveal a narrowing disc space l2/l3. The doc did not note that the right transverse process is also skew. Can this caus?
