Hello,

Welcome and thanks for your query.
Your symptoms may be due to different causes. One reason may pinched nerves in the back . Another is a urinary infection. It may also occur in relation to the gastrointestinal tract.
Do let me know if you have symptoms like burning when you pass urine, bowel disturbances or burning in the abdomen etc to enable me to give a more precise opinion.

Detailed Answer:
You should be careful about your posture, avoid bending forward, sleep on firm bed and avoid lifting weights. You could use a muscle relaxant like relaxon and Neurontin ( gabapentin ) for pain relief. It is better to avoid NSAIDs as far as possible. Physiotherapy also would be helpful.
