Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query and understand your concerns. It seems that the pain that you describe, could be due to muscle spasm involving muscles of lower back. Hot compress should provide relief. It would be a wise idea to visit a physical therapist as he can demonstrate to you the exercise that could help you to overcome the problem.

Feel free to write back in case of further queries, if any.
