Severe headache, pain is sharp while walking, back hurts all the way down spine. Suggestions

I never get headaches, but my head is so painful. Also, my back hurts all the way down the spine. When I walk the pain is sharp all up and down my back. My temperature is only 99. I don't have any allergy-like symptoms, so I don't think it is a headcold. I don't want to overreact and go to the hospital, but this level of pain is not something I have ever experienced.
