Back pain on both sides of the back bone

Patient : HiI have been experiencing muscular pain on both sides of my back bone for more than a month now. When it first occurred the doctor told me its just die to over exertion as I'm a chef and job demands heavy lifting and long hours of standing. I was fine within a few days with the painkillers he gave. But after a week its back again and I've not got relief with the same medicines. It's been almost three weeks now. I have medicines pain subsides after a few hours its back again. What should i do?
