Exam: Certainly get an xray of your lower back and an examination. You may have an irritated sciatic nerve: OK to use OTC Tylenol (acetaminophen) if you are pregnant. Passive stretching exercises and good posture will help.

Low back pain: You are very young to be having these issues. Have you had any injuries? If not, you need an x-ray and labs to make sure you don't have juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Good luck with this and hope you feel better soon.

Back pain: I'm confused, you state that you are on Nexplanton birth control implant but then report pregnancy under conditions. If you are pregnant, then your symptoms are likely due to pregnancy. Otherwise, you may have back muscle strain. If you are pregnant, talk to your doctor about safety of medications you are currently taking.

What are some tips for how to treat back acne?

Acne Therapy: Acne treatments work by reducing oil production, speeding up skin cell turnover, fighting bacterial infection, reducing the inflammation or doing all four. With most prescription acne treatments, you may not see results for four to eight weeks, and your skin may get worse before it gets better. There are topicals like ziana and epiduo and oral medication like solodyn (minocycline). See your dermatologist.

Possibly: Nothing protects against fractures better than avoiding the falls in the first place but hip pads can be helpful for someone who chronically falls. Using a walker, removing throw rugs, lighting poorly lit areas, balance training, and muscle strengthening with weight bearing exercise and proper nutrition are all parts of the prevention program.

Muscle pain?: Pain in back muscles is more common reason for this complaint than actual kidney pain. But kidney stone possibility cannot be ruled out. Also, could be related to kidney infection esp if you have signs of of UTI e.g. Burning, frequency, or foul odor with urination. A visit to your doc will help differentiate this.
