I need some advice on a back problem. I have it for almost two years. I went to a doctor in my area for my issue, and he took an X-rays, and it shows a mild inflammation in my lower spine. He gave me medication to bring down the swelling and told me to use it for 10 days. However, it has not helped, and it is getting worse. Kindly advice.

Have you had ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), CRP (C-reactive protein), urine routine, which are the markers for swelling or inflammation.
