Best answer.: Be evaluated in person by a doctor. It's unlikely to be anything serious, but you will not find out what it is until a good doctor performs a history and physical examination. Good luck!

See below: Low back pain is often a chronic condition. There are many conservative treatment options including medication, therapy, and sometimes injections. Surgery would be a last resort. Often the best way to treat chronic pain is to work on posture, exercise, modify diet. Seeing a physician would be recommended to discuss these options.
