Back pain: If it is truly back pain, then the most common cause is muscle strain; in which case stretching, maintaining tolerable daily activity, otc analgesics within reason, and adequate sleep are the best remedies. However, other problems such as a kidney stone or nerve entrapment could be the cause. For this reason, evaluation by a physician is recommended given your level of discomfort.
