A:   Hi,
Thank you for posting your query on ATD.
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. You May be suffering from backache. Vitamin D3 deficiency is important cause of backache. You can get your vitamin D level and if found low it can be supplemented by vitamin D3. Otherwise your hard lamp can be investigated by x ray of lumbar spine and MRI of the region. Analgesic such as ibuprofen is helpful in relieving pain.
Hope your query get answered.
Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
