But am unable to get rid of the pain. Please suggest some thing to reduce the back pain.




Hi,

Sorry you are experiencing these issues. I would suggest that you first stop using any heat and start using ice. Second, I would recommend going to this page:

http://www.joint-pain-solutions.com/bulging-disc.html

I am not saying that you have a bulging disc but it does sound like your disc may be irritated and following the advice listed on that page will help. There is also a link on that page to specific exercises that will help.

Hope you find some relief. Good luck.
