Thanks for writing to us.
The sudden appearance of an acute back pain could be due to a muscle spasm or acute disc prolapse. Proper examination and investigations like MRI are needed to find out the cause. Till then taking oral muscle relaxants will help you.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
