Brief Answer:
Get xray done.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have read your query.

From your symptom it seems you have lumbar sprain or developing disc problem. I would order for xray of lumbosacral spine in AP and Lateral view done to see present condition of disc spaces and vertebrae. Your doctor / orthopedic can order this test.

Till then have tab. aceclofenac 100mg +thiocolchicoside4mg twice a day by prescription of your family doctor.

Have complete bet rest for three days except for nature's call.

Apply hot packs.

I hope it helps.

Thanks,

Dr.CHANDER XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
