Back Pain

For the past couple of days, my son, age 19, has been having pain in his lower back when he gets up after lying down. It is severe, and he has to sit down right away. It does not bother him after he walks  a while, nor when he sits, only upon arising after a night's sleep.

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of his backache. Possibilities that may need to be considered include postural issues, neuro-muscular causes such as muscle sprain, nerve impingement, injuries to muscles/ ligaments, inflammations, spinal causes such as degeneration, micronutrient deficiencies, referred pain from other regions such as kidneys etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought. Meanwhile I would suggest rest. He could also try taking some tylenol/ OTC NSAIDS and see if these seem to help.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
