A most common problem.Dr Moorehead is correct: see your FP to go forward.Most back pain will resolve with minimal intervention on our part other than anti-inflammatory meds like ibuprofen stretching and time.

In brief: Spine Pain Options

This pain in the distribution as you suggested is the result of an irritated nerve or facet joints or other injury typically in the lumbar spine (low back) which are caused by herniated disks, spinal stenosis or degenerative disc disease, etc requiring further evaluation by a spine specialist and may be candidate for facet injections/radiofrequency ablation and epidural steroid injection.

In brief: Find the cause

You need a physician to identify the cause and then treat the cause to get rd of the problem. Back pain can be caused by spasm , but the spam can be there to try to protect a damaged aea like a ligament or muscle tear that needs to be treated.
See a doctor to start the process.
