Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for your query

Yes, extreme cold temperatures can cause back pain. If it is extremely severe I would advise you to seek help from an orthopedician

Meantime, examine yourself and find out if you feel weakness in your limbs, hip and knee joints and if you are able to feel temperature differences. If you are not able to perform these activities or if you have numbness, then you need to seek medical help at the earliest.

Else the following measures can be helpful:
1.     Take ample rest.
2.     Local heat application - You can also keep warm pads on the affected area.
3.     Topical pain relievers which are available over the counter can be applied over the affected region.
4.     Oral pain killer like ‘aceclofenac’ can be obtained with a prescription from your doctor. You may try this if above measures are not helpful.

Hope I have answered your query. Any other questions, I'll be happy to help. Please accept my answer if you do not have further queries.

Wish you a speedy recovery.

Regards
