    Good morning. Sorry about that. You are right. The waist pain you are experiencing is most likely related to your job. You should get up and stretch your self after often as you can. Regular exercise and targeted massage with balm to the area involved would go a long way to ease your pain. If there is any history of trauma to the region, you might require x-rays to rule out any fractures. Take tab ibuprofen 400mg occasionally to manage acute pain. Do not use if you have peptic ulcer disease. Also do not use more than twice daily or over a long period of time to avoid complications. Take care

    Hello. Yes stress can also cause the neck pain you have. Same management methods I have outlined also applies. Massage neck regularly to get relief. If your job is too stressful for you, you should think about getting another one if possible before you break down or you could always ask for some time off to recuperate. Take care
