Sharp back pain, difficult to turn during sleep, constant pain. Taken ibuprofen. Treatment?

I was doing some martial arts training and for the past few days i have severe pain in the lower right side of my back. its a sharp pain as a try to move around, find it difficult to turn when i sleep. the pain is constant. I think it may be muscular pain. ive taken ibuprofin twice but this has made no difference. It hurts a lot especially when i sneeze or cough . Any idea what it may be?
