It looks to me that you have developed acute back muscle spasm. I would suggest you to take x ray of the spine which will confirm the diagnosis. I would recommend you following treatment.
1. Tablet Myospaz or Myoril tablet
2. Voletran gel local appication
3. Brufen tablet for pain relief water fomentation
5 . Avoid bending forward and lifting heavy weight
