Brief Answer:
Few possible causes

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.
This may be referred pain but it would have some other features such as pain radiating to leg and knees and tingles in leg. So it may be inguinal hernia or neuropathy of inguinal nerves. I think you should do MRI scan of lumbar spine and check blood sugar,potassium and B12 vitamin. Pain should be managed with nonsteroid painkillers or oxycodone. Wish you good health. Regards
