A 19-year-old female asked:

Get more information: Pain in the mid-lower back is very common. Over 90% of people experience some spinal complaint at some point during their lives and it usually improves without needing any specialized interventions in 70% of patients. Common causes include pulled muscle, annular tear of the disk, or facet joint pain. You should be evaluated by a healthcare practitioner to get more info.

Yes: Most patients with osteomyelitis/discitis do not have fever. It presents with back pain at first with or without neurological symptoms. It often occurs in people with compromised overall health, such as people with immune diseases, diabetes, renal failure, or intravenous drug abusers. If you suspect that you have a spinal infection then you should undergo MRI with contrast immediately.
A 25-year-old female asked:

Possible: Congenital stenosis is a common condition. It means that your spinal canal is smaller than what would be expected at that particular level of the spine. It affects surgical planning but does not mean that you will absolutely have to undergo surgery to treat your back.
