you may be suffering from back muscle spasm but we definitely need to rule out a condition called ankylosing spondylitis in which buttock pain and stiffness may also be there.
you need to see a rheumatologist to better diagnose your problem.

Thanks for posting your query.

Most common reason for back pain is back muscle spasm. Initial stages it is only muscle dysfunction however when it becomes a daily and persistent problem then one need to rule out spinal cause such as disc damage.

I encourage you to consult a spine surgeon whenever feasible. He/she can help you in determining the cause.

In case of severe pain, rest, pain medicine along with physiotherapy such as Interferential therapy (IFT) is advisable.

Muscle stretching and core strengthening exercise helps to prevent such episodes in the future.

Wishing you good health
