Brief Answer:
Back pain.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Frequent back pain can be due to various causes such as muscle spasm, wrong sitting posture, dehydration, riding bike, etc.

You can try the following home remedies:

- Cold/warm compress.

- Exercise: stretching exercises, walking or jogging.

- Avoid smoking, it increases the risk of osteoporosis of spine.

- Weight loss if you are obese. Healthy diet of fresh fruits and vegetables.

- You can take painkillers for symptomatic relief such as Tab. Dolo 650 or Ibuprofen. In case of muscle spasm take Tab. Myospaz Forte once a day for 2 days after food.

- Drink plenty of water/fluids.

In case your symptoms persist or worsens such as weakness or numbness of limbs it is best to meet an orthopedician for a detailed examination and treatment.

I hope this answered your query.
