    She might have scoliosis bc 11 or 12 is about the age you get this. That is when they discovered mine. She needs the doc to examine her back and get an xray. They can brace her or have her do exercises to keep it from progressing.

    Kind of. She may be getting her period *gasp*

    She may have also done something at school. Sometimes a silly fall or new sport causes muscle strain. 

    If it’s persistent and painful for her to move, I would go the doc for sure
