Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I understand your concern.
From the history provided, it seems like a muscular pain, you can apply a local analgesic like Diclofenac gel or take Advil twice daily, and this should come down.
Try to rest for a couple of days, restriction of movements as far as possible, is helpful.
These kind of pain should never have an intensity of more than 5/10, also if the pain starts radiating downwards, for example, towards your flanks, you will need medical attention.
Feel free to discuss further,

Thank you very much for your reply. A follow-up question:
I think I forgot to mention that my back is not sore to the touch anywhere, meaning that I cannot probe the source of the pain just by pressing different parts of my back on the outside. The only consisent thing that causes pain is twisting. Given this, is it still possible for the source of the discomfort to be muscular, or is this an indication that the pain is not musuclar and due to, say, an internal organ?
Thank you again.
As of now, it sounds like a muscular pain.
Kindly take Advil and let me know if the pain subsides.
