Patient: I’ve been having back pain for the past few days. It’s a sharp pain that travels up my spine and almost throughout my entire back with basically every step that I take. Is this something I should be worried about, or do you think I should seek medical attention? I’m a 17 year old female and the pain isn’t from an injury.
Symptoms: Pain, back pain, fever
