What are other symptoms that you are experiencing? By doing what like walking, exertion, eating or empty stomach- it increases or decreases in intensity. For how much time the pain remains? Is there stiffness also? How is your appetite? Are you constipated? I need to know more to be able to make a diagnosis.

Back pain can be due to multiple reasons. Firstly go for a back x ray.(lumbar x-ray ap and lateral view. Update your x ray so that a diagnosis can be done.
