Low Back Pain
Based on your answers, some of the more likely causes of your back pain include
a compression fracture (related to osteoporosis or spondylolisthesis)
muscle spasm or strain
a back injury that you may not even remember.
While over-the-counter pain medicines, a heating pad and rest may be helpful, it is important that you see your physician to evaluate these symptoms.
