In brief: Back pain

Most common cause is muscle strain (pulled muscles).
There are several other spine related causes such as disc herniation and arthritis. Non spine causes include kidney infection/stones, gallbladder stones, pancreas inflammation, ulcers , etc. Morning back pain with stiffness is usually related to arthritis....Disc degeneration.
