Felt Sharp Pain
Strain/sprain.: Sounds like you pulled a muscle. Ice on for 30 minutes, off for an hour, & repeat until 8 hours after injury, and then as needed for comfort. I think ibuprofen should be avoided for 72 hours, to minimize bleeding at injury site. Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain relief for 1st 72 hours, rest. If the pain is severe or constant, could be rib fracture, so see doc, in that case. If not follow-up 7 days. Did you win? ...Read more

Strain: Hi KristinaM, its likely just a strain and dissipate with time. You may notice some mild discomfort and minor swelling over the next few days. It can take as long as a week to heal. If the pain worsens or swelling becomes dramatic or if you have loss of function, it may be a bit more serious and would require a visit to your doctor. Ice and anti inflammatories can helpful for symptoms. ...Read more
While walking, I felt sharp pain in the lowest part of my back. The pain's not constant. I'm 19. I've never felt this pain before. Did I strain myself?
If the pain is associated with movement- bending, twisting etc. It is most likely muscular.
There are multiple categories and types of medications for back pain; depending on how severe your symptoms are, how long you’ve had them, where they’re located, and what side effects you can tolerate:

I fell @ 3 weeks ago. 1st week no pain, then I felt sharp pain behind my ankle. Now it's 3 weeks & I feel no pain. Tear or strained tendon?
Likely not a tear:
Most likely not a tear or strain in your tendon. A torn tendon or ligament is usually painful from the time of injury, to the time it heals (usually a few weeks). The pain you felt may have been a mild inflammation in your achilles tendon, which resolved on its own. If the pain comes back and continues, you should probably go see your primary care provider.

No idea: Without a physical exam, I could not tell you what the pain was/is. Generally speaking, a simple "wet dream" would not cause any pain.
