In brief: Can be anything

Could be muscles, nerves or even joints causing your pain.
If stretching, performing core strengthening exercises and nsaids don't help, i would consider speaking with your doctor regarding more thorough evaluation. You may need an ergonomic evaluation to make sure you are sitting appropriately for your spine and job.
