Back pain: Physical pain is a sign of alert from our body, that always must be taken in consideration.
Properly assessing the symptom of pain requires a thorough questioning about the characteristics of the pain, the schedule, intensity, duration etc. It also requires examining the patient in order to obtain signs and symptoms that can guide the diagnosis.
Visit your doctor.
