See a doc: If you have not seen a doctor yet, you should see one. There are many causes of lower back pain and your doctor should be able to determine what is causing yours and then suggest a treatment regimen that should help.

Try: If this occurs with prolonged standing & is ok or better with other positions you may need to get into better shape around your core muscles. If overweight, start dieting & if smoking, stop that as well. Try taking some over the counter medication like tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprophen if you are ok with these medications. If the pain is long standing, worsening or if there all the time, go to your doctor.
