Brief Answer:
Take treatment and precautions as advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Low back pain at this age may be most commonly due to muscular spasm.
Is there any history of trauma, weakness in lower limbs, urinary complains, any sensory loss or radiation of pain to lower limbs?
For treatment you should avoid lifting heavy objects, squatting, sitting crossed leg, stooping forward.
Take pain killers with muscle relaxant like etoricoxib or Aceclofenac with thiocholchicoside or tizanidine.
Local pain reliever ointment can be used.
Imaging may be required in non responsive cases.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further queries.

Thank you for your response Dr N XXXXXXX There is no history of trauma, weakness in lower limbs, urinary complains, any sensory loss or radiation of pain to lower limbs. Can it be due to kidney stone or any other problem with spine?

Brief Answer:
Take treatment as advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Welcome back,

Possibility of renal stone can be there as pain may radiate to back region but the pain is severe and episodic rather than constant.

You should try treatment as advised and if not relieved then do consult a doctor for the necessary investigations.
