This is Dr. David
paracetamol is not a very good pain medication or anti-inflammatory
you should try ibuprofen 200mg-400mg every 6 hours and see if that helps
or naproxen sodium, 500mg every 12 hours and see if that helps
these are both available over the counter at your local drug store or pharamcy store.
if these don't help the pain, then you have to see a doctor at the hospital or emergency room or see your local GP doctor for stronger pain medications and anti-inflammatory agents.
you should also use ice packs and heating packs alternatively on your back
