Have back pain, headache and unable to sleep. Cause and cure?

hello my name is Dustin Knight, I am 23 and I have been having severe lower back and down both legs. I have had a constant headache for the past few days. I ve tried taking something for the pain and tried ice packs to ease the pain. I can not sleep at night due to the pain. The pain in my back has been going on for about 2 days now. Nothing is helping. Any suggestions of what it could possibly be and what could help?

You take ibuprofen medicine for your pain and follow the instructions to relive your back pain
1.avoid bending forward and lifting heavy objects.
2.don't sit on the floor.
3.when you sit in chair your foot should rest in a very small stool to avoid nerve pull. regular exercise like lying in supine pose raising one leg till 90degree angle with out bending the knee, practice the same exercise on the other leg also and lie in prone pose keep your both the palms below your shoulder and raise your chest look up. Practice these two exercises in an empty stomach with the repetition of 10 times and maintain for 5 secs.
If the pain still persists consult doctor and you need physical examination.
Hope my answer will solve your problems.
Take care.
