Hello, Sorry to hear this. Back stiffness may be due to a combination of muscle spasm and spinal stenosis. It can also be due to condition called ankylosing spondylitis.Please get the following blood tests done -ESR, CRP, HLA B-27. concentrate on stretching exercises and flexion based core and back strengthening programme. Best wishes.
