Back pain when trying to straighten my back, difficulty sleeping. Chronic ongoing condition. Causes?

Hi, I experience back aches when I try to straighten my back fully. This has been persistent for the past 3 months, and I have difficulty sleeping sometimes. Further, after standing for about 20 mins, I usually experience aches in the same area and when I try to bend forward or straighten my back, the ache may intensify. May I ask what may I possibly have?
