Back pain symptoms
Most people experience some degree of back pain during their lives. The symptoms will vary depending on the part of the back that's affected - and the cause of the pain.
Lower back pain symptoms
Although the pain may be concentrated on the lower back area, it may also affect the front, side, or back of the leg or legs.
The pain may develop over many years, from causes such as poor posture.
The symptoms can also appear suddenly, perhaps after some heavy lifting or twisting the back awkwardly. Sometimes the cause of the pain will remain unknown.
Symptoms may be worse at night, while sitting or during some body movements.
