Back pain - Symptoms


Common symptoms of back pain include the below.

  • Pain anywhere in the back
  • Inability to stand straight even for a few minutes
  • Muscle ache
  • Pain radiating from your back down to the legs
  • Intense pain in your lower back while you try to move, bend or lift something
  • Stiffness anywhere along your spine

In some cases, pain may go away in a few days and a treatment isn’t necessary. But if the pain is persisting for more than a week, a visit to your doctor may help to find the cause and get relief from the pain.
