See your doctor: Postprandial back pain may be a sign of gastic issues. These can range from "gas pain" to gall bladder disease. Pancreatitis and gastric ulcers can also present in this fashion. All of these and many more less common diagnoses can give postprandial back pain. See your doctor to rule out the more serious causes.

What's good for lower back spasms and pain?

Heat, otcs, etc: Simple low back pain and spasms can often be treated with over the counter advil or aleve (naproxen). Heating pads, hot showers, massage and gentle stretching exercises also help. If these don't do it, your doctor can prescribe a stronger pain medicine and/or a muscle relaxant.
