Viv, it might be due to inflammation of the muscles, bad blood circulation, electrolyte disturbances, something pressing on the nerves in your back, etc. You can try taking a long acting anti-inflammatory like Brexecam® for a week or so, but if it doesn’t clear up the best would be to see your GP. Good luck.
