    Good morning, sorry about that. Are you hypertensive? Do you have ulcer? Did you have any trauma to your back? Which part of the back do you have the pain? A peptic ulcer disease can cause pain close to the chest and also have pain at the back. You should do a abdominal ultrasound. An angina too can cause chest pain, a chest xray and ECG can help to make a diagnosis of this. If the pain is at the lower back then you might have to do a lumbosacral xray as this can be spondylitis. I'll advise you see a doctor to fully examine you and get appropriate management.take care

    Are you having cough? Do you produce sputum when coughing? As this chest pain can be as a result of pleurisy which is inflammation of the pleura which covers the lungs. The painkiller you mentions will resolve the pain but it's still advisable to carry out some tests to treat the cause of this pain and not just treat the pain. Take care

    If you are having ulcer taking those painkillers can cause more harm to you than good. I know some are expensive but the abdominopelvic ultrasound shouldn't be more than 2000 naira and this will help to know if its a peptic ulcer. If its an ulcer then you will be needing more drugs than just painkillers.

    Almost every drug has its side effect no matter how small it is. So if you don't have any problem with erection or sustaining erection I wouldn't advise you take any medication.

    She needs to do further tests like an ECHO, ECG. The xray shows she has hypertensive heart failure. She should also see a cardiologist for full assessment.

    Supplements for what? Eating enough fruit will be a ready supply of the major supplements you might be needing.
