Back pain: Back pain is a broad general term and many patients call back pain at different locations. Pain is described as stabbing, sharp, shooting, dull, aching just to name a few examples. Most back pain gets better with time. Stay active and know that you are proabably not damaging anything. We don't recommend 'bed rest' anymore. If things don't get better, then see a physician for work up.

That is a symptom...: With lots of causes. Depends on age, sex, location, onset, quality of pain, e.g. Sharp, dull, achy, constant or intermittent, radiation to other areas, associated symptoms, etc. Check with md, get examined, tests if necessary.
