This may or may not: Be related to a spine issue or referred to the back from another cause such as GI related: ulcer, gallbladder v renal such as a kidney stone or infection v reproductive. If your are experiencing other symptoms for which you are taking prilosec, see your physician for an evaluation as to what is going on with your condition.
