Hi there
Birth control pills can sometimes cause heaviness in the breasts. But unlikely to cause back pain. There could be local causes involving muscular or spinal problems for the backache. Sometimes due to water retention in the body there may appear some bloating of the body giving a swollen appearance. Try some lower back physiotherapy and see if you get some relief. Hot fomentation to the lower back will also help.
