Virus, back pain, abdominal pain righthandside
I have a constant pain in my lower back, when I sit down or lie down. It gets better when I am up and about. Eventually it moves into my upper back and neck and I get serious headaches. Do you have some suggestions for me. It sometimes feels like a virus has invaded my body. I know this sounds strange, but that is what it feels like.

WM, it sounds like you have a back or neck problem and that causes muscle spasm that leads to all your other problems. You can try drinking an anti-inflammatory like VoltarenĀ® as soon as the symptoms start, but the best would be to see your doctor and have x-rays taken. Good luck.
