Sprain/Strain: There are many potential causes of low back pain after a fall. The most common are sprain/strain injuries. Usually acute back or hip pain will improve over 1-2 weeks with anti-inflammatories, gentle streching, and use of heat/ice. If your pain does not improve or gets worse you should contact your physician.

Disc disease: This could possibly (among other possibilities) represent a bulging disc. Discs most commonly bulge postero-laterally (back and to the right or left). Bending forward will tend to cause the vertebral bodies above and below to sort of "squish" the disc thereby aggravating the bulge. This could increase the degree of stenosis (narrowing) in certain areas allowing for nerve impingement.

Menstrual pain: Severe pain should be evaluated by a gynecologist. Mild to moderate cramping can be relieved with NSAID meds like Ibuprofen or naproxen. Check out no-drug methods too like massage, exercise, and a new menstrual belt called ziivaa.

Several things: Start with gentle but regular aerobic exercise (walking, cycling, water exercise). Build up core strength (tummy and back muscles). Eliminate tobacco use. If such simple measures have been ineffective, consult your primary doctor or a spine physician.

Back pain: At your age, most patients have back pain caused by benign conditions such as early degenerative disc, soft tissue inflammation, deconditioning, etc. The good news is that conservative treatment is usually very effective - physical therapy, exercise, weight loss, smoking cessation, improved diet.
