What causes back pain?

I m an 18 year old girl and have had back problems for maybe 3 years. Went to doctor to get an X-Ray and they couldn t find anything. Sometimes it hurts on my lower back, sometimes upper, and sometimes all over. It hurts when I lay down, sit down, and stand up for maybe 45 minutes. Please tell me what it could be??

Hello and welcome to HCM,
Lower back ache has to be investigated with appropriate investigations.
MRI of the spine is the investigation wherein the soft tissue surrounding the spine are visualized.
Soft tissue lesions are more commonly responsible for chronic back ache.
Treatment can be instituted after relevant investigations.
Physiotherapy will also help to relieve the pain.
I suggest you to consult an orthopedician for further management.

Thanks and take care
