Hello.

Your best course of action would be to see your primary doctor and describe your back pain. He/she may order an x-ray or MRI (the best test). If there is anything serious, your primary doctor may refer you to a spine specialist such as an orthopedic spine surgeon or neurosurgeon. While surgery is always a last resort, a spinal surgeon is the best doctor for diagnosing and treating back problems.

I pray you can get answers and relief soon.
Blessings,
