I am 36 years old and healthy. I had Vitamin D3 deficiency with back pain four years ago when I was abroad. I came back and, did physiotherapy and Ayurvedic treatment. Things got better in two years. But I still have the following symptoms.
Back pain comes when sitting for a long time specifically in certain kinds of chairs. Sometimes twisting pain comes suddenly when I sit in certain chairs for long. Standing continuously in certain types of floors is an issue. Lifting weights is fine, but still, need to comfortably lift more than 6 kg. Standing is comfortable in roads, shops, etc., for a long time. Spine pain radiates to the back of the head and neck at times. When that happens I sometimes get lightheaded when seeing objects rotate. Pain comes when I sit and clean objects. If I do no fully sit pain does not come. Long scooter rides sometimes cause back pain the next day.

You have symptoms that are typical of core and back muscles weakness. I will advise you to take up some regular exercise schedule whether it is gym-based, or at home like yoga, or even at work where you do chair-based exercises that help you with core strength and back toning and flexibility exercise.
You can see a good manual therapist or a physiotherapist who will be able to guide you. You should be mindful of poor posture and avoid sitting in position for any length of time.
Thank you doctor,
I would take your feedbacks and continue my exercises and also look at the option of seeing a physiotherapist. I am also doing the exercises that my physiotherapist taught me before at least thrice a week. I would also like to get more clarity on the symptoms that I mentioned before.
Back pain comes when sitting for a long time specifically in certain kinds of chairs. I also get sudden nerve movement near bone while sitting in the chairs. That makes me feel uncomfortable for a few minutes before the body settles in. Could you please explain the reason and what can be done to prevent it?
Standing continuously on certain types of floors is an issue. This mainly happens on carpet floors. So I feel to sit in chairs. In home floors or grounds, there is hardly any issue and I feel very comfortable.
Spine pain radiates to the back of the head and neck at times. When that happens I sometimes get lightheaded when seeing objects rotate. Why the same happens?

The chairs that have a lumbar curve are preferred, as you sit the change of posture may affect the facets joint position and that brings the movement that you feel (maybe painful too). This should improve with strengthening the back muscles.
The heel digs in more than the forefoot when you are on the carpet any this changes the overall posture and pelvic tilt which explains the pain and discomfort.
This is a creator of cervical spondylosis and you will need to get an x-ray and as I alluded to earlier to best to be mindful of the posture to adopt in the office desk, laptop, phone use, etc.
