Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possible causes of back pain that may need to be considered include postural issues, spinal structural defects, neuro-muscular causes, injuries, inflammations, degenerations, nutrient/ micronutrient deficiencies etc; while passing out episodes could be due to causes like hypoglycemia, hypotension, stress, anxiety etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care pediatrician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
