Rest: any recent trauma or stress on your body? recent illnesses? if not, you can try conservative measures initially such as over the counter anti-inflammatory meds and rest. if no improvement, your doctor can do an exam to rule out other causes of low back and hip pain

Consult your: PCP asap as these symptoms could be related to a host of concerns. A consult with a Sports Medicine Specialist may also be helpful.
