Brief Answer:
Possible muscular pain.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for using HCM to post your question.
I read it carefully and I understand your concern.

The pain in the lower back can be either from muscules, nerves or bones.

It doesn't sound like a pain from bones because it is very painful.
A pain from a nerve in general radiates in the back of the legs or down to them.
A pain from muscles would be worse with the movement.

I think yours its most possible to be from the muscles and aggravated from the standing sat position.

I would recommend for you to apply locally an analgesic cream, 3-4 times/day, and do some exercises for strengthening the lower back muscles. You can ask the help of a local physical therapist if that is possible so they can advice accurate exercises.

Hope this is helpful.
Let me know if you need more clarifications.
Otherwise please kindly close and rate the answer.
