The anti-inflammatories on the market now are pretty much the same as 10 years back, and if these are not giving you relief, you do indeed need to see an orthopedic specialist (preferrably one specifically specializing in spine issues).

 

Tailored exercises and PT (e.g. lumbar traction) may do more than drugs will.

What's the cause of the back pain? 

 

Maybe seeing a doctor or physical therapist and getting an x Ray may be a good idea 

 

Also not sure what your diet is like but try looking into an Anti Inflammatory diet, certain foods have anti inflammatory effects like turmeric, dark leathy greens, berries, walnuts, fish etc.. 

And some foods increase inflammation in the body like processed foods, refined carbs, sugar..

between my shoulders came from carrying a piano and get stuck on a doorstep,

i think a piece of my spine got pushed inwards, and that in turn causes my ribs to dislocate from time to time. the bigger issue came later when i was lifting heavy during working, i was sort of bending forward and lift with my back rather than my legs since i was too exhausted to move my feet. i can only stand or walk for a few minutes a day, and these days i also get pain from sitting or laying down,

i can not escape the pain no matter how i do

I feel for you, and I am a member of your pain club.

Unfortunately there comes a time, if all else fails after a reasonable length if time, when surgery may be a best option.

It sounds like you have not had an actual medical evaluation.

 

There are stronger anti-inflammatories available from hospitals only and depending on what tests show to be the problem these might be given. It also possible, but by no means certain, that you might need surgery. If you are not a surgical candidate and medications fail there  are other methods of pain control such as nerve ablation and even insertion of spinal cord stimulators available from hospital pain clinics.  Bit all of this requires that you stop trying to self-manage and see an appropriate specialist.

 

 If you are in or near Bangkok I suggest you see this Prof. WICHARN YINGSAKMONGKOL (same doctor, different hospitals, BCH is cheaper)

He can also probably be seen through the Chulallongkorn Hosp after hours clinic less expensive still but you can't book by phone or online and there may a wait list.

I have disc profusion at L5/S1 & was quoted 50k baht at the Army Hospital here in Udon for a Microdiscectomy.

 

Go & see exactly what the problem with your back is.

of course, check out with the best doctor in town...

 

but try a natural spice called curcuma....you must have heard of it and you find it in many grocery stores that sell spices, or at any shop selling indian spices....mix it in hot water say 1 tablespoon....try it for a month....it worked miracles on me,  many many years ago when my hernia was getting unbearable.....

Yes, Curcumin is very good.

 

If you really do want another anti inflammatory, then I suggest Arcoxia. My Orthopaedic surgeon first prescribed this for me.

It doesn't give the same G.I. problems that other AI's do, but is quite expensive. About 120 baht for 5 × 90mg tablets.

You hardly need to win the lottery to afford a 1,000 baht doctor consultation.

 

Lower back surgery in Thailand will NOT cost you anything near the amounts you mentioned,  more like 50 - 250,000 baht depending on what hospital and type of surgery. Which you may nto even need. For all you or anyone else knows, conservative treatment might suffice. But it needs to be .prescribed by a doctor and  probably include meds you cannot get over the counter.

 

From Pattaya, you need to come to Bangkok. I know it is hard to travel with our back like that,  but it is also hard being in all that pain.

 

See the doctor I suggested.

As others have suggested, far better to get a professional opinion first. It may not even be something that requires surgery.

 

I had a slipped dic in my neck, and it was treated with cortico steroid injections.

 

If you are in as much pain as I was, a visit to a doctor for a diagnosis would be top of my list. Those injections provided immediate, though temporary relief.
