In brief: Don't Know

This is a general question with a huge list of possible answers.
Your best bet would be to get a thorough work-up by a pain management doctor, orthopedist or physical medicine/rehab doctor. Some of the more common causes of back pain include musculoskeletal spasm, strain/sprain, arthritis, herniated discs, history of previous back surgery, scoliosis, and trauma.

At your age, usually muscular, disc bulges, or genetics such as family history of arthritis.
