What causes lower back pain?

Hi, I have lower back pain and trying to pinpoint what is causing it. My bed was old, so I just bought a new one and now sleeping is better. I work as a preschool teacher and am bending all the time, though I ve been doing this for years. I started using the Nicoderm patch 2 weeks ago and have been placing on my upper buttox because I hear it is best to be at a meatier part of your body. Would that be it? I am 35F. Also, I recently stopped using the NuvaRing about a month ago. My breasts were super sore for 2-3 weeks but alleviated after I started my next period. Do any of these things sound more of a reason than the other for my lower back pain?

Hi Back pain has mainly mechanical causes.
Then in few cases there is disc prolapse or constriction in canals from which nerve comes.
Or there could be swelling of the membrane of the joints of spine.
Only exam and investigation can tell the cause
