Depends on cause - assuming due to spondylosis and/or oa.
Tylenol (acetaminophen) or nsaids which can be over the counter. Sometime opiods are needs for pain control. Other medications such as Cymbalta and some muscle relaxants may help musculoskeletal pain.

I agree. Have it evaluated by your physician to get the appropriate treatment.

In brief: Depends on the cause
Back and leg pain could be as a result of many different things.
A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause. Causes of pain may include: trauma (fracture, sprain, arthritis), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), circulatory, musculoskeletal or biomechanical abnormality and neurologic conditions (neuropathy).

In brief: NSAIDs ms relaxers
I usually suggest a NSAID to be used for any radicular symptoms or during the day since they won't cause fatigue i like using muscle relaxants at night since they will help one sleep, but they are still not addictive.
