Back pain: Back pain is one of the most common reasons for a visit to the doctor. It's hard to assess what you may have without an extensive history and physical. Start with some otc Acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Use an ice pack or heating pad. Decrease the volume and intensity of your activities. If your pain continues and becomes severe, then ensure you have follow up with a doctor.
