Back pain: It all depends on what has been going on the days prior to the onset of pain. Did you fall? Lifted something heavy? Sometimes injuries on muscle may present with a bulge. I recommend that if symptoms last more than a few days you get checked by your pcp.

See below: Not sure i understand this question some people have more back pain when they bend forward, this is usually seen in people with disc problems. Other people have more pain when they bend backward which suggests problems with the back joints (facet joints) or can be a sign of spinal stenosis which is a condition that typically occurs in older adults.

See below: Not all back pain comes from the spine itself. Some back pani can be related to damage or injury of the spine, some can come from arthritis of the spine. Some can come from muscles that are weak, too long or too short and imbalanced. The spine undergoes normal wear and tear just like every other part of the body. Even when the MRI shows these changes, it does not always mean pain.

No: There is no one miracle shot that will cure back pain from abnormal curvature of the spine. However, early detection and treatment can minimize or at the very least decrease the effects of curvature on back pain.
