you should get evaluated with MRI of the spine which will give some clue. Any problem which can be corrected with surgery will also be identified in that. During the period of pain you can take medications to reduce pain. Physical therapy to strengthen back muscles will also help. Any faulty techniques of sitting, sleeping can also cause back pain. These can be discussed with doctor treating you.
Good luck.
