What can one do if there is generalized pain on either side of one's spine. It sometimes radiates to the hips and down the thighs. It is painful, stiff and some movements cause the back or thighs to suddenly seize, like a frozen shoulder or neck. Muscle relaxants are not helpful but Advil or a anti-inflammatory medication offers relief until the effect wears off.
Any suggestions on how to deal with it?
What might be the best way to check this out further? I had an X-ray but it did not show anything.
