In brief: Try Simple Measures

Try icing your back for 20 minutes or so laying on your side.
Try some over the counter analgesics like Aleve (naproxen) or Motrin (you can use the generic versions). If no relief, see a doctor right away. If there is interference with walking or bowel or bladder problems, that's an emergency and you need to get to an er asap.
