MedlinePlus:33 If you've ever groaned, "oh, my aching back!", you are not alone. back pain is one of the most common medical problems, affecting 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives. back pain can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain. acute back pain comes on suddenly and usually lasts from a few days to a few weeks. back pain is called chronic if it lasts for more than three months. most back pain goes away on its own, though it may take awhile. taking over-the-counter pain relievers and resting can help. however, staying in bed for more than 1 or 2 days can make it worse. if your back pain is severe or doesn't improve after three days, you should call your health care provider. you should also get medical attention if you have back pain following an injury. treatment for back pain depends on what kind of pain you have, and what is causing it. it may include hot or cold packs, exercise, medicines, injections, complementary and alternative treatments, and sometimes surgery. nih: national institute of arthritis and musculoskeletal and skin diseases

MalaCards based summary: Back Pain is related to spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease. An important gene associated with Back Pain is COL11A2 (collagen, type XI, alpha 2), and among its related pathways are Protein digestion and absorption and Collagen biosynthesis and modifying enzymes. The compounds oleic acid and ether have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include bone, skin and testes.

NINDS:43 Acute or short-term low back pain generally lasts from a few days to a few weeks. Most acute back pain is the result of trauma to the lower back or a disorder such as arthritis. Pain from trauma may be caused by a sports injury, work around the house or in the garden, or a sudden jolt such as a car accident or other stress on spinal bones and tissues. Symptoms may range from muscle ache to shooting or stabbing pain, limited flexibility and range of motion, or an inability to stand straight. Chronic back pain is pain that persists for more than 3 months. It is often progressive and the cause can be difficult to determine.
