Osteoporosis can be a source of chronic back pain. When your bones weaken, you can develop continuous micro-fractures to you back that leads to chronic pain. These micro-fractures lead to humping of your spine and shrinking of your height. Now you know why your 86 year old Aunt is now 3 inches shorter than you remember. Get tested for osteoporosis. Start treatments if necessary. Take Vitamin D3 and Calcium after discussion with your Family Doctor or rheumatologist.
