Pain in the lower back area, feeling stabbing pain and spasms while standing up. Cause?

I was feeling fine yesterday, when all of a sudden I felt a sharp pain in my lower back/rib area. I didn t lift anything, fall, hit the area or anything. It doesn t hurt to bend over, but when I try to stand up straight, it brings tears to my eyes. It also feels like spasms and stabbing just to the right of the center of my back.

Welcome to HCm,
It seems that you have got spasm of your back muscles might be due to some unusual movement at back during sleep.
This gives problems aggravates while stand up due to movement muscles go in to spasm.
Apply some muscle relaxant cream like Relaxyl.
Take some analgesic with muscle relaxant medicine will give relief within a day or two after spasm will be released.
ok and bye.
