... have tried over the counter drugs such as tylenol, ibuprofen and aspirin. Nothing seems to help. I have tens device too. I also do back exercises and use over the counter heat wraps or pain patches. I have tried the heating pad and ice packs. Nothing is working! What else can I do? Please help!
You may benefit from a non steroidal anti inflammatory (NSAID) such as Soma. It will help with the pain and reduce inflammtion around the spine.
Keep up the exercises as that is a beneficial treatment for your condition.
Gabapentin (Neurontin) was previously mentioned. If your pain is nerve based then it might be helpful. Other non narcotic medicines that may help nerve pain include Lyrica and Cymbalta.
Good luck and keep in touch,
