I notice that this last few weeks, I have this back pain, and I don't know why I have this pain..I want to consult to a specialist or therapist regarding this matter but I don't have time for this. What do you think is/are the cause of this pain? I usually go home late or morning, I don't have always enough sleep, most of the time..I'm awake 24hrs Do you think those things are the cause? I'm so afraid that time will come I will have a hunchback when I get old. .

I think the smart thing to do is to make the time to go get your back checked out by a doctor. This way you can at least find out what may be the cause of your pain and you can get on the road to healing quicker. If you have something serious and let it go undetected, you might make your back worse by not taking care of it sooner! Then you'll have a harder and longer time healing, if it is able to heal at that point. Go get it checked out! No one can really say what your back pain may be caused from as it can be many things. Injuries, pinched nerves, herniated disks, hereditary factors - it could be anything. I have many friends and family members who have some sort of back pain - and many of them have them for different reasons - some worse than others. If you've had this back pain for 2 weeks and it's not improving, then you really need to see a doctor or specialist or someone - at least I would.

First of all, it is all because of stress. Too much stress will develop illness; or maybe it's because of poor diet and lack of sleep. You have to consult your doctor because you might be suffering from scoliosis, like what you have said, you might have a hunchback when you get old, scoliosis will cause your back turn curve in the sideways. It can be disabling you and it will cause lungs malfunction. If you are still a teenager, it should be monitored closely. Again, consult your doctor for further advise. Have a nice day!

i do agree with adeena.i have experienced the same thing like yours mhekhies when i was in college and i will say it is all because of stress.so i start to twist my routine by getting enough sleep and start balance diet with enough nutrient.i realized that my body is lacked with calcium so i start consumes product that provides me with the nutrients i need and of course strengthen my bones for sure.by the way if you think that your body getting worse then better go and seek for the doctor advise.:)

I get a lot of back pain and have done so for several years since I injured my back whilst doing some house renovating. I went to a chiropractor at the time who x-rayed my back and showed me that I had twisted my spine. I am not in pain all the time now, but a lot of the time. I practice meditation a lot and being calm and relaxed in meditation helps me to transcend the pain. Rather than trying to avoid it, I focus into it, and it makes a big difference. The only medical answer has always been to take pain-killers, but that in the long run will make it worse as they become less and less effective, the more I take. I could advice you to check out uour pain with your doctor, they may be able to fix it, unlike mine which being on the spine would make surgery a little dangerous. _Derek

Tsk...tsk... that's so bad...but thanks God because you can able to do things or to walk, run and everything even though you had an spinal injury...that's very dangerous...spinal cord is next to the brain, that's good to you that you don't get worst condition.. Yups, doctors can fix this pain of mine...I hope I can afford the bill!! (,

I think there is a problem in the back muscles and you should take time out to go to a doctor because this is very important, my friend was facing a problem similar to this and when she went to the doctor, he said that thankfully she came before else she could have got a paralysis as my friend was really getting pain from the back.

Ouch, we have the same problem. I think I always feel this every time i go to bed. I just apply locally bought lotion and balm. Sometimes, the pain just goes but sometimes it doesn't.

No enough sleep is a big problem! You have got no time to recover daytime exhausting. More rest and proper exercise will do you better. I suggest you to reduce work time and do some jog or yoga.

First you need to consult a doctor if its paining severely. If your sitting posture is not proper, this might also cause back pain. Not only that if you go on work which your body can no more tolerate you might get this pain. Usually what i do is , whenever i get back pain, whenever i sleep, i just sleep lying down, and not on my bed. this somehow cures me of my pain. Hope you get relieved from the pain soon.

Well first, you have to identify which part of your bach hurts. is it hte upper back, lower back, the mid portion or the whole back. Then, when does it usually occur, during daytime, night time or all the time. You also have to identify what triggers the attack of your back pain... long hours sitting at work or in the internet, during activity or when you take a certain posture. And is it associated with other symptoms like cough or painful urination? Either which way, of, course you have to consult with your doctor. BUt it would help a lot if you take note of the things I asked you to identify or observe. It would help your doctor to diagnose your problem. Backpain could be a lot of things. For women at mid-age, scoliosis or postural problems can cause backpain. Even stress can make your muscle tense and cause the pain. But since backpain can be a symptom of very serious illness, I guess you just have to make time for it before it's too late!

Thanks for a very informative advise my dear.. i think, mid portion of my upper back is the pain site. I usually felt it whenever I seat here in front of computer and do some online jobs... maybe you're right, having this painful back maybe from those causes...

ya might need someone to pop it could be out of line or yyou have pulled a muscle. and to yuo might better take time to go to a doc. and find out what is really wrong. Walk and set strasight and you shouldnt fear of being hunchbacked but if you walk stooped over now it will get harder to straighten up later.

If the pain is recurring, it is already a symptom and not an ordinary back pain. Aside from injury to the muscle, or bones, or nerves of the spine, pain also arises from the abnormalities of organs within the abdomen or chest may also be felt at the back. Having kidney stones can cause back pain. You need to see a doctor to subject you to a series of blood tests to determine what really causes you to have back pain. Now na.
