Hi Orlando, The type of pain you are describing sounds like you have a lumbar area nerve pinched. This could be caused by the osteoporosis you have been diagnose
with, or it could be from some seemingly minor injury or twisting of you back; or a naturally occuring degenerative process. If the pain does not subside after taking an over the counter anti-inflamatory medication like Motron (the full recommended dose daily) or Aleve you should see a Nurse Practioner or MD to have a X-ray and possibly MRI examination. You should have Ph. Therapy if it continues. Also for now alternate cold and hot packs. Cold packs first 20 min (this numbs the pain) then heating pad 20 minutes (this relaxes the muscle spasm..Be sure to not sleep on the heating pad all night.
