Brief Answer:
may be back muscle spasm

Detailed Answer:
Most likely it may be back muscle spasm. I would suggest to consult a spine specialist. You can start anti-inflammatory medicine with muscle relaxant and local gel application with hot water fomentation. This will help to relieve the pain. Also consider doing physical therapy as well. Intermittent traction will be useful. If pain persist or if you get any leg problem then MRI spine need to be done.
Taking absolute rest for 3-5 days is essential. Any X-rays done? if possible please upload it. Thanks.
