The Bottom Line
Lower back pain can be debilitating symptom caused by several different body conditions and underlying factors. If you experience it around the time you get your period, your symptoms may be associated with factors linked to your menstrual cycle.
Sometimes, your pain also is caused by body conditions and factors that can affect any person regardless of gender or age, such as a herniated disc, muscle strains, or sciatica.
The specific treatment for back pain depends on the diagnosis (the underlying cause). In a majority of cases, you can try home remedies and self-care measures first. However, if your lower back pain worsens or doesn’t improve after a week, consult your doctor for early diagnosis and prompt treatment.
