This could be : Muscular in origin or related to a disc issue. Most back problems tend to resolve on their own but depending on the degree and duration of your symptoms you can choose to give it more time or become proactive in terms of taking some otc meds if no contraindications and doing some back exercises that can be found on websites such as spineuniverse or spinehealth.Com. Otherwise, see your physician.
