Dear Talitah, the single most common cause of lower back pain is a torn
or pulled muscle and/or ligament. You, however, do not make mention of any
injury and one must then consider some other cause. Some other common causes of
lower back pain include:
Ruptured or herniated disc
Infections of the spine
Not common but could possibly be cancer of the
Advice is that you visit your doctor to have your lower back pain
investigated. Pain is a sign that tells us that something is not right. It
should be possible for your doctor to determine the cause of your lower back
pain after he/she has conducted a thorough physical examination and possibly
some additional tests as well. (MCH).
