    Mike, I think you need some doctor's advice here. Back pain generally isn't caused by pneumonia, unless it's pain around the chest that feels like it's kind of around the back... Please ask the doctor about this; (s)he will be able to give you better information based on the specific symptoms and other information only (s)he would have. Good luck - PJH
