What causes back pain?

I'm 16, 6 foot 3, 180 pounds, and i have asthma and allergies but no other bone or muscle problems. I was working out about a week and a half ago and I was do an ab workout by lifting my legs that had weight on them. About 20 pounds each leg. I think it pulled a muscle in my back or something because ever since i added that part to my workout I've been having back pain in my lower back. I was just wondering if I did pull something in my back and if so how i should treat it. I haven't been doing the weight ab workout since the pain but i have been working out regularly.

Hi,Welcome to healthcare magic.After going through your query I think You are suffering from acute backache. It may be due to muscular injury and stretch. Treatment of it is rest and analgesics . Diclofenac three times a day after meals is effective. Sometimes strong analgesic(such as ultracet three times a day after meals) is required. OMEPRAZOLE 20 MG before meals prevent acidity caused by analgesics . I think your query answered.Welcome to any follow up query
